I agree, I don't see anything useful for propulsion. Supposedly the radioisotope stuff was on early F-117A's or maybe just the test aircraft but no
longer. Now dielectric barrier discharge is being published.
I have no idea, what they are using now. But if you have a jet engine, then creating a HV is extremely easy.
But I would also think that if they use it, they would rather use a pure electric solution, as then you can always adjust it for optimal flight
As I was again tinkering in the Hill thread
My only possible idea would really be, what I already said, namely that you create a kind of "plasma window" to get an underpressure above the craft.
As I tinkered in the Hill thread, it would explain the color changes seen on such crafts.
It may be quite astonishing, but you would already be able to hover the small example craft I mentioned in the Hill thread (saucer, with weight
density of submarine, 0.3m dia, 0.1m height) with only a pressure decrease above the craft of 1/100 !!!
So just by decreasing the air pressure of such an example craft above it by 1%, would already allow the "model" craft to hover in the air.
And if you would decrease the air pressure above it by 50% to half the air pressure, it would accelerate upwards with about 50g.
I calculated this size of craft, as it seems to me about the size I would expect from crzayfool's description of what he once saw in a
