Early Aircraft Projects / Re: Gotha P 60 flying wing projects
« Last post by newsdeskdan on Today at 08:23:40 am »

All of the designs show the front landing gear offset to the side (moving it away from the intake).

Something is bothering me about the P.60A-2: All of the drawings show the front landing gear unmoved... however it would be in front of one of the air-intakes?!

Is this correct? What do the original drawings look like?

There was no A-2. The different version of the Gotha P-60 are:
P-60 A mit BMW 003
P-60 A mit HeS 011
P-60 B mit HeS 011
P-60 B mit HeS 011 und R-Gerat
P-60 C mit HeS 011
P-60 C mit HeS 011 und R-Gerat
P-60 C mit HeS 011 (three-seater)
P-60.007

The real life design that's closest to the 'A-2' is the P-60.007 and the original drawing for this clearly shows the nosewheel offset to port.

What is this?



It doesn't seem to fit with the others.

Curious if they would consider the semi-active version of MHTK now that they have the illuminators.
The coyote UAS is a joke. A whole 2.5ton for four expendable jokes. Even a bigger joke.

From Inside Defense

Navy looking to dramatically increase range, speed of SM-6 with larger rocket motor

The Defense Department has launched a prototype project that aims to dramatically increase the speed and range of the Navy's Standard Missile-6 by adding a larger rocket motor to the ship-launched weapon, a move that aims to improve both the offensive and defensive reach of the Raytheon-built system.

This is a full-caliber SM-6 with a 21-inch fuselage and motor, not the usual 13.5.  So basically the same change as SM-3 Block IIA.

here is unknown VTOL surveillance and recce low-wing aircraft project of 1961,intended for
army and had a lift fans in fuselage,can anyone ID it ?,page 33;

After my dear Lark recognized it as General Electric/Ryan design,maybe there was a competition for VTOL
surveillance and recce aircraft during 1960s,and maybe Grumman G-260-4C involved in it ?.
