You post a lot of military tech related articles and I find them interesting too.

As with your article here and air launching of ICBM’s out of the back of cargo transport airplanes, successful execution of a concept does not mean that it will be practical in a operational sense. That among other things seems to be lost on you in all the mil-tech articles you post.

If you want to look into a really cool project that never made it inot operation, research the ‘Convair Kingfish’.

The Air Force thought it had potential.
