Hi,

bomber Project of flying wing shape,does anyone hear about it ?,sorry I don't remember

Hi, Horten's Argentinian build

A bit of FMA-38 image enhancement - just for fun.

There is no question that the UK had the necessary metallurgy to construct turbines, Whittle, Hooker and their peers would confirm that.
Rolls-Royce and Bristol, along with BTH and research at RAE etc. had been developing superchargers progressively since the mid 1920s and had acheived a high degree of efficiency in both intake and impeller design. In the Rolls-Royce 'R' racing engine of 1929 the power consumption of the supercharger was matched by the additional boost acheived in the intake duct, effectively taking the net power drain to zero. Furthermore the introduction of ejector exhausts to provide a modicum of thrust meant that not all the enegy in the exhaust was lost. All in all I doubt that the advantage of turbochargers in the war years was that significant.

Hi! Martin Baker Tankbuster.

https://nofineline.com/martin-baker-anti-tank-172/
"The Martin Baker Tankbuster was a paper design conceived by James Martin, co-founder of the Martin-Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd., famous for the manufacture of ejection seats. The very compact airframe and wingspan, combined with heavy armour (5,000lbs of ½ inch armour plate) and offensive weaponry, could have made the MB Tankbuster a formidable close support aircraft.  Built around the primary British 57 mm anti-tank gun of World War 2 (Ordinance QF-6 6 pounder), the aircraft was to have been powered by a rear mounted the Rolls-Royce Griffon engine."

Model. What is this nose gun?
