in late 1950's German made study a mixed powerplant interceptor for the Luftwaffe

there were even join venture talks with England

index.php

like Saunders-Roe SR.177 German version.

there were more
I found interesting note from Dr Harry o. Ruppe on that project:

in late 1950's they development for Interceptor a Lox/Kerosene rocketengine
High pressure, regenerative cooled staged combustion cycle with 10 tons trust
cooled by Lox!
after interceptor program was chancels, MBB overwork it to ELDO-HDTW Engine with Lox/LH2
for Europa IIIB and D Booster proposal, after that was chancels MBB got a request
by Rocketdyne for a patentrights on ELDO-HDTW, that became later the Space Shuttle Main Engine


got some one more info to this German interceptor Project ?

Michel, actually it WAS the SaRo, license built. It was one of the ideas to reequip the Luftwaffe fo the '60s. The Saro was to be a point-interceptor, supplemented by a general purpose fighter (ah, the SuperTiger...) and a big figther-bomber (only possibility,Thunderchief). It ended with the F-104 doing everything, supplemented by Nike-Hercules and Hawks (the missile). Lot of info in "Project Cancelled" .

Thanks for Info Skybolt

but there is one mystery:
this Lox/Kerosene rocketengine they develop for a Interceptor

a Lox/Kerosene on SaRo.177 makes no sense
was this engine for Avro 720 ?

or this engine only a technology research program ?

Good question. Probably it was for research purposes, not for an operational aircraft. LOX/kerosene is much simpler to handle if you want to test aerodynamcs and flight envelope operations.
