Good Day All!
Here are a few of the negative scans - thoughts on whether this is Model 192, Mach 12 Demonstrator or?!?!
Enjoy the Day! Mark
That's extremely interesting.The first of the configurations, Configuration 234A, was optimized for supersonic aerial refueling. It had a gross weight of 41,850 pounds, a zone range of 3,045 miles, and a post-zone range of 1,885 nautical miles. (Range was split into zone and post-zone legs. Zone was the effective range once the aircraft reached its operational speed and altitude, defined as Mach 4 and 90,000 feet.)
Supersonic refueling posed several aerodynamic problems so this configuration was dropped from consideration.
