I have the following

AP 503 : a series of different projects, finally evolved as the C450 through the C400
AP 506 : freezed project actually built as C450 (with moustaches added)
AP 507 : Mach 3 interceptor with ram-jet in its ring-wing
AP 515 : tail sitter interceptor without ring wing . undercarriage opens as a compass but is folded in booms during flight (I only know it by hearsay)
AP 519 : tail sitter interceptor , looks much like AP 515 but I have only seen a perspective sketch of it
AP ??? : two-stages satellite/missile launcher . First stage is actually a recoverable ring-wing ramjet aircraft .

Can you help me fill the gaps ? (AP 504 , AP 505 , AP 508 , AP 509, AP 510, etc...)

thanks

JCC

The satellite launcher is unknown to me, here are the AP.507,
in both configurations (conventional and prone pilot), and
the funny AP.521, better suited to the tank forum, I think.

Thank you

I have only the patent for the launch vehicle. (hence I don't know its AP number). I'll try to scan and post this WE.
AP 466 was made-up by Cuny , it does not exist with this designation. 466 is the number of the SNECMA report describing the "alphabet" coleo...
