it looks like 1 survivor was belted and other 3 not yet Conflicting information on specialized forums. Yes, the survivor was belted. However, the casualties were belted too. The difference is that survivor's catapult did not activate (it was the CO/Captain's seat, and it apparently has separate lau...Jump to post

Shaikovka airbase near Kaluga
reported Tu-22m3 while starting engines catapults accidentially launched, killing 3. telegram channels say one of killed was regiment commander
no more details now
there are old KT-1M catapults with 130km/h needed
also, i cant see a reason for such big wing fairing
MLG can be placed behind engines like in old planes or Dash8.
not so big Mach for area rule
is there proof its a real emb proposal?

Because the exhaust air from the engines will ruin the flow over the stabilizer in normal design. The engines will be mounted on top of the wings directly in front of the stab if it is not a T-Tail design.

I know that the efficiency will vary by the thrust setting. I assume engines are designed to be most efficient at cruise thrust. In terms of the percentage of the energy in the fuel that is output as usable thrust, what is the efficiency of the current generation of turbofan engines? The most effic...Jump to post

I did not read all pages, but to me doing a clean sheet design with a kerosene-burning plane seems a very conservative design. I believe this is rather disappointing. Granted, the hydrogen infrastructure isn't there yet. But the design should then at least be designed to be easily derivable to hydr...Jump to post
