Yep. But at least this "joke" is documented on SPF. And it will be interesting, in the future, to see if this "joke" has a place in studies, or timelines, etc. whenever H-8 / H-20 histories are publicly unveiled. Having something like that shown in a museum is always interesting.PaulMM (Overscan) said:Its not even vaguely plausible. Either a joke or a relic from the early 80s.

And the article I read said they want it to be a large, supersonic heavy bomber. Like Blackjack/B-1B but without the "old fashioned" swing-wings.
