Do someone has more on this monster?
Skybolt said:Additional hint: I remember reading in an old AW&ST issue (early 60's), that Goodyear had a project for a dirigible to carry and put in place MMRBMs. Next week I'll try and find that issue in the library. The Sikorsky project could be a different approach to the same task.
Skybolt said:Thanks Scott, you spared me the scanning..
Sferrin: I have something, not much, a lot of blahblahs, but a couple of artistic impression of the general concept and a list of contactors involved. I'll post in a separate topic (scanning, scanning all the time...). And, BTW, the DS-103 was probbaly originaly developed for more than one type of missile. I think of the SICBM as the original driving force (80.000 lbs payload).
flateric said:Said that DS-103 was studied in the same timeframe along with S-63 (i.e. end of 50's - beginning of 60's), both projects were presented at 23th American Helicopter Society meeting (1967). The main rotor dia was about 60 m. That's damn all that's said.
OK, I will call it ....bzzz...'Homersky'!
