I have searched all of aircraft type designed by Australia and got this web that is really completed by still lost CA-26, and CA-29. Other lost by this web is CA-27 and CA-30 but I have known those are different version of F-86 and MB-339. So what about 26 and 29?

CA-26 is the prototype Avon Sabre - 1 built. Production aircraft were CA-27.

CA-29 is the Australian built Mirage IIIO

Would you give me some pictures of MiG-1/3/7, MiG-7U? I don't Mikoyan has built I-7U that looks like a two-seat fighter. I really want to get that I-7 U

Sure emile.

The MiG-1 was the initial production version of the I-200 prototype which in slightly developed form became the MiG-3. MiG-1 and MiG-3 are very similar.



MiG-7 was a tentative designation reserved for the I-224 prototype - it did not go into production. Therefore there was no MiG-7U two seater.

MiG I-224 / MiG-7

The MiG I-7U was one of the I-3, I-7, I-75 series of jet prototypes similar in concept to the MiG-21, but with swept wings. The U, in this case does not refer to a two-seater.

MiG I-7U

Sorry the pictures are poor quality, but that's all I have of these aircraft at the moment.

Here's a bit more on the I-7U.

This prototype saw quite a bit of use, it was first built as the I-3P and then converted into the I-7U before finally being converted into the I-75. It first flew as the I-7U in April 1957.

The drawing under the photo is the I-7K which was the same design but adapted with a twin-radar in the nose and intended to be armed with AAM's instead of guns, this configuration was never flown but it is the only I-7 drawing I have and it gives you the overall shape.

I don't do general aviation emile, excpet for the ones I just 'happen' to know so I don't have a clue what that is, I do military and commercial aircraft and projects, GA just leaves me cold.

OK, must be my turn again...

The first one is the Williams V-Jet designed by Burt Rutan.

The second appears to be a Sud Vautour IIB

I dont know where you got that from...

I got the x-02 wyvern from acecombat5/4 lol read the ats-1 design thread

was that a real life designation? I didn't see anything on google

posted on Jan, 28 2006 @ 09:20 PM
There is no real life designation, nobody designates non existant aeroplanes except the British aircraft industry who've been doing it for decades

posted on Jan, 28 2006 @ 11:41 PM
On second thought that is the ats-02 wyvern concept posted byyyyyyyyyyyyyyy......

That's because you Brits do everything weird waynos.

Are you suggesting that Britain is defended by non-existant aircraft that are overbudget, delayed by up to four years (Nimrod 4, Westland Apache), just don't work (Nimrod AEW.3) and re-inventions of existing aircraft types that are already out of date (Eurofighter Typhoon)? How novel !

Please tell some of the "noted British Aviation Journalists" who have been continuously lauding the British Aviation Industry for years, that in fact the last truly worthwhile aircraft built in Britain was the Spitfire ! And even that was short on range to do the job - but that's OK, the situation was save by the Mustang, without which RAF Bomber Command would have been able to safely bomb Calais with fighter escort!

And don't give me that "Hunter" stuff - it was later into service than the US coming into a world war, and was the equivalent of a Sabre (see India-Pakistan conflicts), which Britain bought while waiting for the Hunter.

Well, today, I hope you can teach me which type of Hawker Tempest has 5 propellers? I saw some Tempests has 4 propellers or other Tempests has 5s' both be called MkⅡ that cause me very confusion

posted on Jan, 29 2006 @ 05:55 AM
I've never seen a Tempest wiith a 5-bladed propeller ( although '5 propellers' would be overkill with just one engine anyway, I should think a Tempest with five propellers should be able to take off like a helicopter

A tempest almost certainly test flew a 5 bladed prop, and its possible that some may have been fitted in service but I can't remember seeing one. The Tempest V, VI and II all had four bladed props as standard. The Hawker Sea Fury had a five blader as standard though, could you be thinking of this?

wombat, don't forget that when we actually managed to invent the 'best bomber in the world' in 1964 we frightened ourselves and quickly tried to hide it before anyone else saw it.

It is difficult to say - there is so much mythology about the TSR.2 (and I recognise your attachment to it and its cancellation). When you consider how long it took to design and build, with ever changing specifications, etc (See Project Cancelled - Derek Wood) and then put it in time context, you really have to compare it on a technological level with, say, The North American XB-70.

Now, the XB-70 was built to a specification that was no longer viable due to surface to air weapon technology, and the TSR.2 succumbed to politics rather than anything else, so there is a vast difference in why the aircraft never went into service.

Notwithstanding the politics of finances and the "last manned aircraft", I recall there was quite a controversy at the time regarding long fixed runways versus VTOL, which did as much to kill the aircraft as anything else. Some British journos still haven't gotten over it - eg - Roy Braybrook, who still believes that all combat aircraft should be hidden among the trees and take off vertically, notwithstanding the fact that they have inherent disadvantages, and in spite of the fact that the only people yet to fly a supersonic VTOL aircraft have been the Russians (Yak-141) and the French (Mirage IIIV) and neither of them put these aircraft into service.

As with the Canadian Avro Canada Arrow and the XB-70, I'll have to go with the Scottish verdict of - Not Proven.

Just as an afterthought, we in Australia have particular needs of the aircraft that we buy - I am constantly annoyed, for instance that manufacturers around the world offer us products that just won't do the job we require, both from a range point of view and the fact that we can only afford so many aircraft - which must be multi-role - we can afford nothing that is particularly specialised (for instance F-22 and F-15 before it would have been useless to us). With the role of our F-111s partly being maritime strike (with Harpoon), I'm not at all sure how something like that would have fitted with TSR.2. The F-111 certainly has fitted in very well with our requirements, and unfortunately, from our point of view there is really nothing on the horizon with which to replace that aircraft and still fulfill the roles it performs for us.

Well Waynos:
I think you may considered that only SeaFury has 5 bladed propeller, but I remembered also there is some tempest with 5 bladed propeller existed. Could you identied Tempest and SeaFury for me?

then what is this?

this one give to Wombat
