Good Day All -

Some non aircraft/missile drawings from the Vought Archives of a proposed TACV - Track Air Cushion Vehicle. Apparently there as a model similar to this design shown at Transpo '72.

An article on the similar (but built) Rohr TACV is at: https://sites.google.com/site/rohraerotrain/

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Wow! That's looks like something straight out of a scifi movie.

Vaguely reminiscent of this.
but instead of Lockheed Terrastar wheels,

Vought Track Air Cushion Vehicle is build for dual use
once traditional rails and concrete monorail like French Aerotrain
Ceci est juste un exemple
