"The French word "statoréacteur" has been created in 1945 by Maurice ROY (before :
"trompes ou tuyères thermopropulsives"). The British adopted "Athodyd"
(AeroTHermODYnamic Duct) before using ramjet. In Germany ramjet has been called
"Lorinflugrohr" or "Staustrahltriebwerke". In SSSR, ramjet was named PVRD."
