Early Aircraft Projects / Re: Messerschmitt P.1112 Project ?
« Last post by newsdeskdan on Today at 12:00:34 pm »
Hi,

from long time ago,I found this drawing to a Messerschmitt Project,and as I remember,
it was an early P.1112 design,but I forget completely the source or it was it or not,so
I want a help and thanks.

The original's on p96 of Messerschmitt Geheimprojekte by Walter Schick and Willy Radinger.

I found a couple of papers dealing with the "Concorde B" and that much improved Olympus.
Which has a different name than "+25%" as mentionned in that site
http://www.concordesst.com/concordeb.html

It was called the Olympus 593 mk.622 - larger fan and up to 10% to even 30% more thrust. 30% more thrust out of 18 tons, should be 24 tons, and not that far from the Boeing SST General electric GE4.

The papers are behind a paywall (and a pretty expensive one with that) but c'est la vie. I linked the first pages.

Anybody ever heard of a man called P.C Gupka that worked at Bristol engines in the late 70's ?

Very nice model and textures, the concept is surely Alexander Lippisch's

It wasnt a Lippisch design.

My younger self had an extreme Lippisch pareidolia going on :)

As I can see the STAL-11 was a powerplant.

Yeah, the A320 *avenged* quite a lot of european airliners when you think about it.  ;D   It took a very long time for Europe to learn that no single country could beat Boeing or MDD by itself. L'union fait la force (or: l'oignon fait la farce)

Military / Re: Blur between fighters and bombers

If DEWs replace manoeuvrability...

But, a lot might depend ultimately on how the boundary between fighters and surface to air missiles blur...
