I like it. It sounds nice.Or maybe i should just call it Swedish secret air force projects and include weaponry as well?
Swedish secret air force projects: 1926-1976?
Ok: I'll start to buy a lot of lottery tickets! I'll call you if I'll win somethingWell i need funding for the book
What i need to write such a book:
- A full season busscard. (ca 1000 euro)
- Rent money for a year: (ca 4200 euro)
- Material money (document scans) (idk 1000 euro?)
- Someone who can draw detailed and correct aircraft blueprints based on old linedrawings etc.
- Beer money to not go mad. (ca 1300 euro)
- A contact at Saab to clear up all their modern projects and numbers etc.
Saab's numbering systems did wander about a bit. The J-51 does have good credentials, being first published in a contemporary Swedish journal. It looks not unlike the first iteration of the Lildraken, before they cut back the intakes. A reasonable guess might be that it was the initial fighter design study which led to the Lildraken, and that the resulting Draken proper was then developed based on the success of the Lildraken's midlife nose job.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.
