What a confusing article! Throw that on top of a brain that is already running in circles trying to keep up with what projects maybe flying and what
tech went where and I'm thoroughly lost.
I guess the thing that is most confusing to me is, it seems that Blackswift and the Green Lady would have a significant amount of mission overlap but,
some of the artist renderings that were posted in the Green Lady thread were planforms relating to QueSST and here they are showing up in a Blackswift
article. The QueSST planforms makes sense to me as the Green Lady would have to go SS without making at much of a fuss. The caveat to that is that the
Lady makes significant use of plasma to manipulate airflow (per trusted forum members suggestions) so as to avoid these booms. So then that begs the
question, would she necessarily have a planform that looks like the QueSST offerings?
Now, I need to do more research, but does the Blackswift planform also have significant sonic boom inhibiting qualities? It seems that you would want
that quality on the blackswift, but the blackswift renderings look nothing like the theorized Green Lady. Also, does it make significant use of
plasma generation as well? Seems like I need to read more about these ADVENT engines.
I guess maybe I have some sort of time line error in regards to these two different projects developments? It seems to me that Blackswift would have
had to have been around for awhile due to there being such a large gap between the sr-71 and Blackswift development. That doesn't make sense to me
though as intelgurl was very adamant that Blackswift was going black around 2007. So was the Green lady flying prior to the Blackswift?
Or is this all a case of a project going grey vs. a project that is very deep black? Or is it just me being a complete noob and needing to do more
Clearly I need to be taking more notes on all these different platforms and cross-referencing them with all their pertinent research. Sadly, I can't
justify the time that would take right now. Sorry if that rambled, the article's QueSST renderings reminded me of the Lady thread and scrambled my
brain a bit. Apologies to the OP or the mods if this was way out of line.
