Quote from: kerick on September 04, 2022, 08:49:27 PMI think it would need a booster rocket to overcome the forward speed of the B-52. Personally I've never heard of that idea. It would be interesting to see it happen.

Quote from: PR19_Kit on September 05, 2022, 03:11:08 AMThere was a plan for rearward firing missiles to be fitted to the P6M Seamaster in place of its tail gun at one stage. There's a drawing of the missile installation in the definitive book on the P6M, but I'm 120 miles from my copy just now.I'm not sure if the missiles were Stingers or not, I think they were actually 'winders.
Quote from: Pellson on September 06, 2022, 02:33:35 AMMakes me also wonder how you intended to vent the rocket gasses at launch as they would counteract the propulsion of the mum if not properly performed.Really interesting concept and drawings, though!
Quote from: Carlo KoppOn the brighter side, ... a competitive shoot-off ended between Hughes and Raytheon for the Amraam (Advanced Medium Range Air-Air Missile), Hughes winning the contract. Amraam is the replacement for the Western air forces' radar guided Sparrow. The weapon is a fire and forget, active radar guided missile with inertial midcourse guidance, enabling launches against targets pursuing the launch aircraft.
