Quote from: PR19_Kit on March 12, 2022, 02:09:13 PMHow about having the entire nose jettison for the escape system, like the F-111 but more of it? Having a ring of explosive bolts around the fuselage just aft of the cockpit would sort that out pretty well I'd have thought.

Quote from: sandiego89 on March 12, 2022, 03:40:47 PMThe early B-58's and the TB-58 for their entire in service used the conventional SAC seats. The XB-70 used capsules also, and the one time they were used, the capsule likely killed Major Cross as he was last seen struggling to encapsulate in the gyrating spin. I think they would have kept the capsule seats in the late 1960's, but with the primary role being low level at high subsonic speeds your backstory could say they returned to the SAC seat, as Mach 2 at high altitude was less of the profile, and the weight and complexity allowed a return to the SAC seat. If your are using the 4 wing root stations for ALCMS, I would go with the small pod for fuel. While the nuclear stores could clear the pod, not much room there.
