Ok so I found much more information than I thought I would
on these TR-3s and some other 'black' craft.Search results for the 3A and 3B were
completely different from each other as the 'A' appeared to be a sub sonic platform and the 'B' appeared to be the exotic reversed engineered
craft,although they both are considered in Ufology.First the TR-3A or the 'Black Manta' appears to have been a compliment or follow up to the
F-117,serving as a 'Battlefield Operations Platform',it was(is?) sub-sonic and greatly resembles the B-2 Spirit.There are rumors that it was
responsible for the laser ranging of targets for the F-117 'Nighthawks' in the first Gulf War.Now I think that this is disinformation likely and the
TR-3A was either the predecessor to the TR-3B(code named 'Astra') or like one site says "a totally different platform(ie;reconnaissnce vs
attack)using the same core technology."It is possible,but not likely that simply the TR-3A was a 'conventional' black project and the 3B was an
'exotic' project.Apparently the TR series and other unkown,but of similar technology craft are(were)being developed under a project codenamed
"Aurora",yes that "Aurora".This strikes me as likely as I always felt that Aurora was a project name,not
a crafts name,also it is a nice
coincidence that my source said the very same thing.
Notice that I keep using words from both past tense and present tense
as the information varies on development dates and it is likely that
similar,newer generation craft(or the same generation)are still being produced and tested today.The information agrees that it is highly likely that
the first of these Aurora project craft were rolled out and operational by at least
the mid 1980s.As I said it was 9 years ago when I spoke
with X,so some aspects of the conversation I have obviously forgot,but I will tell all I remember as I remember more,the more digging I do.The
following is from the websiteAmericanAntiGravity.com
the information confirms what I was told and says some things I did not know,it is a very
*****Editor's Note: This reprint of the TR-3B specifications claim is based on information generally credited to Edgar Fouche, who claimed
involvement with this project in the 1990's. We make no claims about whether this is factually accurate or not, but this story becomes more
interesting as time progresses. What was originally considered to be a "wacky UFO-claim" seems to be the benefactor of a great deal of coincidence
as AG research moves forward.
Simply put, the TR-3B's claim to use an MHD torus filled with a "virtual plasma" of high-pressure mercury is strikingly similar to the unrelated
claims of Igor Witkoski about the construction of the Nazi Bell device, as well as anecdotal evidence relating to other instances of AG-effects in
mercury in the presence of RF-fields. Additionally, a plasma-toroid is the only means of replicating some aspects of Eugene Podkletnov's
superconductor experiments on a larger scale than achievable through traditional Type-II ceramic superconductors (plasma's and SC's both absorb
magnetic field lines). It should be noted that none of the invidividuals in any of these claims were aware of each other's existence when they
published their work, making the similarities quite striking***
The tactical reconnaissance TR-3B's (code-named Astra) first operational flight was in the early 90s. The triangular shaped nuclear powered aerospace
platform was developed under the Top Secret, Aurora Program with SDI and black budget monies. At least 3 of the billion dollar plus TR-3Bs were flying
by 1994. The Aurora is the most classified aerospace development program in existence. The TR-3B is the most exotic vehicle created by the Aurora
Program. It is funded and operationally tasked by the National Reconnaissance Office, the NSA, and the CIA. The TR-3B flying triangle is not fiction
and was built with technology available in the mid 80s.Not every UFO spotted is one of theirs.
The TR-3B vehicle’s outer coating is reactive to electricalRadar stimulation and can change reflectiveness, radar absorptiveness,and color. This
polymer skin, when used in conjunction with the TR-3Bs Electronic Counter Measures and, ECCM, can make the vehicle look like a small aircraft, or a
flying cylinder--or even trick radar receivers into falsely detecting a variety of aircraft, no aircraft, or several aircraft at various locations.A
circular, plasma filled accelerator ring called the Magnetic Field Disrupter, surrounds the rotatable crew compartment and is far ahead of any
Sandia and Livermore laboratories developed the reverse engineered MFD technology. The government will go to any lengths to protect this technology.
The plasma, mercury based, is pressurized at 250,000 atmospheres at a temperature of 150 degrees Kelvin and accelerated to 50,000 rpm to create a
super-conductive plasma with the resulting gravity disruption. The MFD generates a magnetic vortex field, which disrupts or neutralizes the effects of
gravity on mass within proximity, by 89 percent. Do not misunderstand. This is not antigravity. Anti-gravity provides a repulsive force that can be
used for propulsion. The MFD creates a disruption of the Earth's gravitational field upon the mass within the circular accelerator. The mass of the
circular accelerator and all mass within the accelerator, such as the crew capsule, avionics, MFD systems, fuels, crew environmental systems, and the
nuclear reactor, are reduced by 89%.This causes the effect of making the vehicle extremely light and able to outperform and outmaneuver any craft yet
constructed--except, of course, those UFOs we did not build.
The TR-3B is a high altitude, stealth, reconnaissance platform with an indefinite loiter time. Once you get it up there at speed, it doesn’t take
much propulsion to maintain altitude.At Groom Lake their have been whispered rumours of a new element that acts as a catalyst to the plasma.With the
vehicle mass reduced by 89%, the craft can travel at Mach 9, vertically or horizontally. My sources say the performance is limited only the stresses
that the human pilots can endure. Which is a lot, really, considering along with the 89% reduction in mass, the G forces are also reduced by 89%.
The TR-3Bs propulsion is provided by 3 multimode thrusters mounted at each bottom corner of the triangular platform. The TR-3 is a sub-Mach 9 vehicle
until it reaches altitudes above l20,000 feet--then God knows how fast it can go!The 3 multimode rocket engines mounted under each corner of the craft
use hydrogen or methane and oxygen as a propellent.In a liquid oxygen/hydrogen rocket system, 85% of the propellent mass is oxygen. The nuclear
thermal rocket engine uses a hydrogen propellent, augmented with oxygen for additional thrust. The reactor heats the liquid hydrogen and injects
liquid oxygen in the supersonic nozzle, so that the hydrogen burns concurrently in the liquid oxygen afterburner.The multimode propulsion system can;
operate in the atmosphere, with thrust provided by the nuclear reactor, in the upper atmosphere, with hydrogen propulsion, and in orbit, with the
combined hydrogen oxygen propulsion.
What you have to remember is, that the 3 rocket engines only have to propel 11 percent of the mass of the Top Secret TR-3B. The engines are reportedly
built by Rockwell.Many sightings of triangular UFOs are not alien vehicles but the top secret TR-3B. The NSA, NRO, CIA, and USAF have been playing a
shell game with aircraft nomenclature - creating the TR-3, modified to the TR-3A, the TR-3B, and the Teir 2, 3, and 4, with suffixes like Plus or
Minus added on to confuse further the fact that each of these designators is a different aircraft and not the same aerospace vehicle. A TR-3B is as
different from a TR-3A as a banana is from a grape. Some of these vehicles are manned and others are unmanned.
Remember when I said X told me about alien craft being able to 'mass shift'or 'manipulate mass'?Well that report from a different source
says the same thing
The question I ask is "Why the rocket engines?"It seems like they wouldn't last long enough.(even with the reduced mass rocket engines burn fuel
extremely quick)Would the nuclear reactor allow them to last longer or is it just that with 89% of its mass negated the rocket fuel becomes more like
a 'high powered jet fuel'?
Heres an excerpt from Wiki
(which concurred with other sites concerning the 3A) about the
TR-3A(Black Manta).I believe that the following was the disinformation given to conceal the true nature of the program.
The TR-3A Black Manta is
reputedly a United States Air Force spyplane. It is allegedly a black program, and its existence is officially denied.
The TR-3A is claimed to be a subsonic stealth spyplane with a flying wing design of some sort. It was alleged to have been used in the Gulf War to
provide laser designation for F-117A Nighthawk fighters (attack bombers), for targeting to use with laser-guided bombs (smart bombs). The TR-3A is
supposedly manufactured by Northrop Grumman.
Because there is no hard evidence of the involvement of any other stealth aircraft in the Gulf War, another hypothesis has arisen. This holds that
whatever vehicle has been identified as the "TR-3" is nothing more than a prototype for the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber.
