This design seems to be more hypersonic than supersonic, with its huge booster.
Mmmm....anyway the aircraft itself has too much sharpe edges to be a credible hypersonic.....

I have seen this as being a Kawasaki replacement for the C-46. http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,18068.msg172281.html#msg172281

Thank you Famvburg,


but also the Kawasaki C-1 was the final aircraft in this competition,which began in
1966 and continued at the early of 1970s.

As I know,the company Fuji also submitted some light aircraft Projects in this period
(1960s & 1970s).

As far as I understand, it was a japanese project for the years 2000, with turboprops, mach 0.85 speed, 30% less consumption and 80-120 seats.

Nothing about the company.

"Japanese next gen passenger airplanes wil also have a canard configuration - first will be flying in the 90's. They will have two turboprop engines with pusher propellers, speed around M=0.85 and 30% lesser consumption than current airplanes and they will also be much quieter. There are several proposed variants with 80 to 120 passengers."
Sadly no other info anywhere.

Like my teacher of Economics used to say: "It's always risky to make forecasts, especially about the future."
How true...
