    French and other proposals for Canadian nuclear icebreaker (Polar 10) project, late 1970s / early 1980s

    Does anyone have any information on the French design at least? The program was a precursor to the equally ill-fated (non-nuclear) Polar 8 icebreaker program of the 1980s. The only hard info I have on the French proposal at the moment is that the reactor was a CAS (Advanced Series Boiler)...

    Boeing & North American Rockwell "Windjammer"SSTO

    The other day I was looking at some space proposals from the past and I stumbled upon this beautiful SSTO. I have only been able to find one source that gave some details about it and I'm very much hoping that you guys can help get more details/drawings on this proposal. "The ”Windjammer”...

    General Dynamics Fort Worth F-16 derived GAU-8 gunship concept (G.F.G) from 1976

    Thanks to Air21 over at What If Modelers: Thought this design was already mentioned in an existing SPF thread, but I couldn't locate it. I'm wondering if this design originally grew out of one of the 'Model 402' studies. Also, I wonder if there was a late 1970s semi-official USAF requirement...

    MIAG (Mechanized Infantry Assault Gun) - MICV-70 derived assault gun proposal

    An excerpt: Note: Given the date and lack of dismounts among other things, I suspect that this was the early incarnation of the MIAG proposal. EDIT: Ack, blundered on the title! I put down MIVC-70 instead of MICV-70 and only noticed it now!
