So on the engine side the move to Spey should extend range and endurance. As per brochure from 2 to 4 hours on CAP.

We know that work on AI.18 was costed for additional AMTI functionality along with a general improvement in performance. CW injection for  a SARH guided version of Red Top was available. This would be vital to intercept Bombers and their large anti-ship missiles of the era.

Searching news concerning the New Generation Fighter on the Dassault website, I found a little video about Dassault and the Cleansky program.

IMO there were three interesting "projects" :

-A twin-tailed "Falcon"

-A "Falcon" with canard

-New wing parts for a four-engines civilian transport planes

from Aerei Italiani 1914-1918,please add this, SIA-6b,also SIA-8b.

Done. Thanks hesham

BTW: Those two clippings translate something like this:

Quote
SIA 6b

An alternative designation for SIA-built SP.3 machines (by Savoia-Pomilio).

SIA 8b

Two-seater reconnaissance biplane, equipped with a 300 hp FIAT A.12bis engine. [SIA 8b was] derived from the SIA 7b.2, retaining the fuselage, empennage, and undercarriage. [The SIA 8b differed from the SIA 7b.2 in having a wing cellule with a reduced gap to improve its handling.

[The SIA 8b was] tested throughout the spring of 1918, but it remained a prototype.

Maveric: It seems that the S.I.A. 6b was all but identical to the SIT-built Savoia-Pomilio SP.3.

The upper cruiser-carrier image is a fake. It's from Damien Burke's 'Admiral Furashita' alternate history.

And I thought they had copied the German Horten Ho 229 because there was no horizontal or vertical fin ::) ;)

I think they just copied the Fairey Delta again, what with the 'uppy-over' intakes  :o ;D
