Johns Hopkins Strategic Ram Jet Missile Study of 1946

New article reproducing a Johns Hopkins study of a strategic ram jet missile done for the Air Force in August 1946 is now up on RetroMechanix.com:



The study examines the powered range of a family of ram-jet propelled vehicles to determine the effect of various propulsion parameters and schemes. The accompanying gallery features 9 images, including inboard profiles and artwork of the 4 configurations considered. Each configuration was evaluated in 3 sizes, ranging from 40 to 80 ft in length. Note the unusual reverse delta wing, which showed promise at the time but has since been largely abandoned.
