So an afterburning turbojet which has bypass to make it a ramjet (afterburner only).
Were these engines tested with hardware? What kind of performance figures are we looking at?

Interesting that there were free flight tests of the carrier ship's model. That's really cheap of course to whip up a styrofoam model.

Oh you're right about those. I was thinking of that freeflight model that was released from an RC plane. But maybe it was high fidelity too.

I got answer from Dr.-Ing. G. Neuwerth
in der ELAC / EOS Studie sind die Arbeiten von Sänger II etwas wissenschaftlich vertiefter durchgeführt worden.

in English ILR made in-deep sciences study to Sanger II !
