Found some new weird shit. Not even saab remember doing these as the only info that exists are that they came from kth in 1987.


They are predating 1945.

I'd assume these are missing tale surfaces because they're windtunnel testing something that is only concerned with the forward shape of the aircraft.

There is literally no info at all. All that i known atm is that they came from kth (royal technical high school of sweden) in 1987 and i can tell they predate 1945 as saab only did military jet projects after that.

My suspicion is that they are just test models to get a better understanding of similar planes. But the jet plane looks nothing like any jet plane that was known at the time. The engines also seems to be fitted for ease of replacement considering that jets at the time has very short lifespans. The engines looks very similar to the stal skuten too.

Interesting to see this cannon layout, because exhaust from the cannon could enter the inlet
I posted these on the Saab 29 fb page and the people there said the same thing but the nail in the coffin was actually the development of missiles as they where better for intercepting bombers.

here is the SAAB R 1001 jet fighter drawing of 1945,which later developed
into J 29,it had a mid-high straight wing of thin section,a fat barrel-like a
fuselage and sticking out above and beyond it,a slim tail boom.
From Ailes 26/12/1953,

very strange,the SAAB R.1001 in 1945 had a straight wing ?.

The Ailes pic is showing the 1945 version below and the 1946 above. It went from straight to swept wings like F-86 for example.

From L+K 8/1974,

the RX2 was developed from RX1,and R.101 was looked like Lockheed P-85 Shooting Star.
