Tupolev Design Bureau TU
Dassault SSBJ. The tail is supposed to reduce the sound of the sonic boom greatly.
A design by Gulfstream and Sukhoi. Right now i do not believe that they are working together but Gulfstream is currently doing research on an SSBJ
The top 3 from what i can find are the 3 top runners in terms of actually getting their ideas to fly, although i believe that Tupolev is taking their time.
I cant wait to see these machines flying, Dassault and Aerion project flight tests by 2012 and a price tag of around 80 - 100 million
A little bit more than your Gulfstream V
Cruise is supposed to be Mach 1.6 for the Aerion and Dassault SSBJ
Any ways, i think it is interesting. Anyone with any more info please let me know, i'd love to hear and see some new info about the SSBJ concept.
All ideas are welcome, hey, maybe soon we'll be arging over Dassault and Aerion instead of Airbus and Boeing, LOL
