GTX said:I have the articles you were referring to. The XP-65 was to be powered by a RA24R Avon series engine. Span was 7.3m, length was 14.3m.
Here are some pics from them. First the XP-65:
And the related XP-68 - this was also to be built of stainless steel. It was to be powered by a RR Avon RA19R. It also had provision for a search radar. Armament was 2 30mm cannon + 1 missile on each wingtip + another semi-recessed under the fuselage. It was to be Mach 2 capable and was largely seen as a competitor to the F-104
I'll add it to my scanning list!Kiltonge said:Unfortunately I can't find a scrap of additional info about the COIN project.

The end of the Vampire programme marked the beginning of an extended period when no complete aircraft were produced, although there was work for the company in various modification (see DHA-3 Drover) and repair and overhaul programmes, including repairing RAAF DHC-4 Caribous damaged on active service during the Vietnam War and major servicing of the RAAF Caribou fleet. One design project pursued during this time was for a military jet trainer for the RAAF. HdH offered its P17 indigenous design derived from the Vampire and was also involved in the Government Aircraft Factory (GAF) F2 project, which would have seen HdH undertaking production work on this aircraft with GAF and the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC). The CAC-built version of the Aermacchi MB-326 was selected for production in 1965 and neither project proceeded. However all was not lost as CAC subcontracted to HdH the manufacture of the wings and wingtip fuel tanks, tailplanes,ailerons, flaps, hydraulic system components and landing gear for the Macchi, as well as parts of the Macchi's Viper engines built by CAC.

I don't understand,there was a project called GAF F2 two seat jet trainer,it became the
CAC CA.31 or not ?.
Sharp Notice my dear Jos,Jos Heyman said:Interesting. In the DHA designation system DHA-4 to DHA-9 are missing (DHA or HDH-10 is an RPV), so possibly this executive aircraft could be one of those designations. Maybe this is a direction for a search.
HDH-10 Enmoth I, HDH-11 Beemoth I. There was also an HDH-12 Promoth in 1980. All mini-RPVs.hesham said:the HDH-10 was appeared in 1975 and HDH-11 was appeared in 1978,later I will
speak about them.
Absolutely splendid... Thank you so much for sharing.Abraham Gubler said:From this source here is the brochure for the CAC Wallaby downsized to fit within the attachment limits here.
hesham said:and can I ask you,on the last drawing,they wrote AP35,is that meaning Project P.35 ?.
Great find my dear Petrus.Petrus said:At a Russian webpage http://aviadejavu.ru/Site/Arts/Art8805.htm you may find pictures that were published in the "Air Enthusiast" issue 3 of 1996 in an article "From Fisherman's Bend. CAC Projects, Proposals and Concepts" by J.Vella.
LMS? I might be able to assist but need to clarify exactly wha you are referring to.Avimimus said:Does anyone know where I could find stats/specs for the CAC LMS? I'm curious about engines, weights, dimensions!

My dear Pioneer,I think yes.Pioneer said:Gentlemen, can I press upon the forum for information (or an educated guess) as to when the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) CA-31 might have entered production, had it been politically and militarily supported in Australia.
