chuck4 said:I am thinking if this experiment is simply to test the effect of TV in flight, then may be the al-31 engine's original after burner and nozzle is still there, and is actually encased in this new nozzle. This is why this new nozzle is so bulky.
If this concept had actually gone into production, It would have become a much more compact custom job designed for the engine core, not an bulky add on to an existing engine.
