Quote from: GTX on December 26, 2007, 10:58:13 AMYour 4 engine B-47 sounds a bit like the "YB-47C" (originally the "YB-56") that was proposed by Boeing in 1950. It was to be a major variant, with four big Allison J71-A-5 turbojet engines, providing 4,575 kilograms (10,090 pounds) thrust each, in place of the six GEs J47s. The Pratt & Whitney J57 was also considered, but was still in development, and the B-52 Stratofortress had priority for this engine.Another option might be to take the turboprop route and using 4 big turboprops - it might not be as fast, but range might be improved. Maybe look like a 4 engined XB-47D
Quote from: elmayerle on December 25, 2007, 11:32:39 PMHmm, how about a B-47 with four J57 engines, perhaps using the complete nacelles and pylons from the 367-80/KC-135/707?
