its mostly concept artwork.

the ARCHANGLE concept was a mach 3+ ISR aircraft and the KINGFISH that convair mocked up for the CIA in the 50's

the CL-400 was to replace the US and ran on liquid hydrogen but at the time liquid hydrogen was still kind of exotic fuel, the space race made it a common fuel but the suntan was a few to years early and the SR71/A12 won out


all these aircraft flew at or above mach 3 and were designed in the 50's



look what the Brits came up with around the same time

Those are all in an old book called "Warplanes of the Future" - by Bill Gunston.
I had that book in my early teens.

Good artwork - and lots more cool stuff in that book.

Actually I'd say that the SR71 is the one that looks like it's on steroids, that one looks a little thin, like it missed break fast lol.
Love the art Penroc, thanks.

I'd go with misinformed, from a few things I've read things were advancing rapidly in the 1950's with zillions of dollars and the best minds concentrating on aeronautical and propulsion design.
Many things were talked about then that have since gone deep black, for example antigravity was being discussed openly in the mid 50's with nearly all of the major aerospace(Lockheed, Bell, Northrop etc, etc) companies having well funded programs studying it and saying it was well understood.
Most were confident they'd have it within ten years, then suddenly total silence on the subject like it just vanished into a "black" hole.
If you're interested I'd recommend a book called "The search for Zero Point" by Nick Cook.

Off memory:
1st one is predates ATF. Lockheed or Grumman
2nd one was Lockheed generic concept art for ATF (but you can recognize a bit of Raptor in the genetics)
3rd was North American's FX (F-15) proposal. Real design.
4th is one iteration of the naval F-22 design from LM

I don't remember which house that came from, but it's smaller than the Blackbird. It was a interceptor design pre-ATF.

But ADP has put out many designs over the years scaling up or down the basic Blackbird shape. From the tiny Cl1980 to some massive designs

Did you find about that through the same book? Do you have any links or other papers to read otherwise?

I find this extremely interesting, but i never heard or read about it before today :S I guess the black out did really work

Nonsense


The OP art (except for the NA-335 - F-15 proposal) is from the 1980s.

Pretty sure the first one is pre-80's, too. NATF in the last one would be 90's, though possibly late-80's genesis.

Do Scott Lowther a solid and buy something from him. He has archived gold and a great blog. The secret projects site is worth your support (and a visit) as well.

Pretty sure GASP was pre-80's, too, which puts it in the neighborhood.

None of the things you've since added to this post are the GASP design.
