Is the practice of using water to increase thrust still used? I know fighters in the 1950's could be modified to increase thrust this way in lieu of afterburners. Also, wasnt the f-4 modified to use water. Is this still practical? Would a modern fighter be able to carry water to inject/augment thrust from its engine? could this in theory increase range and engine power, or is is simply for a short burst of extra thrust? If say a modern high performance supercruising fighter like the f-22 carried a significant amount of water onboard for cooling the engine along with increasing thrust is this system practical anymore? Can it be used to increase range?
