Re: Napier tail-less mid-engine Sabre E-122 fighter project......

Dear Boys and Girls, here is an article in French about Napier's annular radiator for the Sabre engines and the same Napier "project" for a tail-less mid-engine fighter using said annular radiator and an E-122 engine (which I understand was an unbuilt high-power Sabre version)......

The article comes from the 3rd August 1946 issue of Les Ailes......

This has come up variously in my efforts to uncover Sabre developments, this seems to have been an attempt by Napier to combine all their dreamed for sabre developments (Contra-prop / Turbocharger) in the E.122 into an aircraft that used their work on annular radiators.
