We have already known what A.36 looks like. http://travels.larp.se/xplane/a36/a36.html ;)
But we still lost 1300series, 1400series and some of 1500series. If you know any little information, please post here.
This thread for every one here,especially for Matej :p

1300 (1952): fighter and attack projects
1319 missile armed fighter with two de Havilland rocket engines,
1325 was a Draken replacement fighter with Gyron jets with partial afterburners on the wingtips and an (automatically starting in case of engine failure) rocket in the tail (the rocket motor is still in use on sounding rockets),
1350 was a larger attack variant of 1325, with full afterburners,
1352 single engine (Olympus) of 1350,
1372 was a an unstable double delta (not even a wind tunnel model),
1376 was the A 36,
1377 like 1376 but with dorsal air intake,
the "U-plan" was also in this series (a variable geometry turborocket submersible M 2 fighter
1400 (1955): Fighter and attack projects, often STOL or VTOL,
1410 was a STOVL fighter with afterburning nozzles in and as the flaps, also good for reversing, M 2+,
1421B was a M 2.8 Draken replacement in 1956
1443 a Mirage III (independently arrived at) lookalike with M 2.3
1500 (1958): STOL and VTOL projects which led to 37 Viggen
1500-01 pretty like a Harrier
1504 in 1961 looked very much like Viggen
1508A2
1534 became 37 Viggen,
1536 a VTOL Viggen

Wow!....a extraordinary designs Antonio.

You have an idea what shape had the wings of those projects?

As the majority of aircrafts of the 50´s were based on german layouts of WWII, I wonder if the swedens based his studies on germans too? because the Draken was an odd aircraft, i mean beautiful, and bizare in his concept, but definitively weird.

1377A definitely reminds me of a F-107. I'll be that'd be a good starting place for modelling it.

Perhaps it's a bit of irony, that one of the strongest advocats for a swedish
nuclear armament was ... Olof Palme !

According to the text it should be a derivative from that 210 project. It is a really interesting that tiny fighter, I imagine it should act as a point defence interceptor. ???

(It looks like that Vipers from "Galactica")

Does the text indicate that the drawings are actually Saab... or is it the magazines hypothetical reconstruction of what they *think* such a fighter might look like?

The text below the drawings in file "Escanear0003" says:

"A Sweedish magazine has published recently the sketches, shown above, which should depict the fighter derivated from SAAB 210 Draken. Should be talking about the J-51..."

I hope translation from French to English (via Spanish in my brain) could be precisse enough.

Regards,

Antonio

Just to confirm that the translation by Antonio is correct.
I have sent a message to IPMSStockholm asking about this airplane.

Hmmm. Leaves the question open... are these Saab drawings that the Swedish magazine published... or, like "Flight," did the Swedish magazine have their own artists?

The Armstrong Siddeley Adder engine measures 73,3 in. (1862 mm.) lenght and 28 in. (711 mm.)
diameter.
The m/39A machineguns 1450 mm.(not to scale in 3 views drawing)
By comparison ,approximate measures of the SAAB-51 are:
Wingspan :3,3 m.
Lenght :3,84 m.
Height :1,3 m.
No place for conventional SAAB Type1/21 ejection seat

I agree. According to the text it's impossible to confirm 100% wheter it is or not a real SAAB design.

Yesterday I was reading "Secret SAAB Projects": Tony Buttler's article about SAAB unbuilt fighters on Air Enthusiast No 90

SAAB effort for a Mach 2 fighter began in 1949 into the 1200 series designation. Early work was based on J-32 derivatives with more power.

Project 1210: rocket powered
Project 1220: supersonic radically modified J-32 derivatives
Project 1230: no data available
Project 1240: no data available
Project 1250: double delta concepts

J-35 evolved from Project 1250 research

Aside from that pic you shown labeled c.jpg, there two more similar Project 1250 designs at AE No90. That J-51 is a bit different from P-1250 concepts. J-51 is also twin engined while the rest have a single engine. It seems to be a rather tiny engine type in the J-51. Not very logical in my opinion, but beware I'm not an engineer.

Conclusion: I can't say if J-51 was a real project, but I have doubt's about its autheticity. Maybe Tony Buttler could add something?


BTW: J-51 doesn't fit too much with Flygvapnet number series. The contemporary Draken was J-35, while the much later Viggen was "37" and Gripen is "39". Following the sequence I imagine that J-51 is expected to be used for some Flygvatnet frontline fighter in a distant future.

Regards

Antonio
