I have come across an article from Air Force Magazine (link below) about the F-5 dated December 1964 that briefly talks about two variants of the F-5 apparently being offered at the time.
First, an improved F-5A with slightly higher thrust ("J85-13/J5", 4300 lbf, 220 lbf higher than the...
I have seen somewhere that Grand slam weapons were considered for use on high value targets on the Japanese mainland. If the B-29 was in fact ready even in small number for use then, would they not have value against logistical high value targets in the conflict with North Korea?
I have come across these pictures of McDonnell Douglas F-101B Voodoo Serial Number 57-0272 with a strange under nose sensor and carrying a MiM-23 Hawk missile.

Whilst reading through the latest coverage from "The Drive", I found an interesting article that might be of interest to the members of this forum. The article discusses the plethora of unbuilt variants of North American's XB-70. There were numerous variants planned, some of...

NASA and the military as of 1966 were quite unhappy at each others.
- The military was encroaching on NASA manned spaceflight area, with MOL.
