Nuclear reactors have already flown in aircraft
Used as the primary propulsion?
TB2 can fly to 100,000ft, although this is false asit flies into space for an episode or two
Engines: 2 variable-cycle gas turbine engines operating as turbofans at low speed and supersonic combustion ram jets at high speed
12 variable-cycle turbo-ram cruise/trim jets in tailplane
4 VTO turbofan jets in main body
4 VTO take off chemical rockets in landing legs
Info from another book - Thunderbirds FAB
