Mentioned in Aviation Week June 1967, too, is the transport aircraft and
the strike fighter in the fore ground. Both would have used RB 162 lift engines,
four in the fighter, 32 in the transport. Type of the cruise engins isn't menioned,
just the number : Fighter 1, transport 4.

Look a bit like a mix of FIAT G-95/3 (the T tail) and G-95/6…

Very nice find hesham, what type of lift fans would this plane use if it was to have been put into production? RB-108's?

Are there any pictures or websites available that mention the RB.162. strange to think that in all my years as a military aviation enthusiast I have never heard about the RB.162.
