Compared to double bubble? Definitely better from a drag count point of view. They carry slightly less fuel than a normal drop tank. I'm no aero engineer, but from a flying qualities POV, they're going to be better than double bubble.I’m curious what effects those CFTs will have on perf.
With IRST21 in the pipeline, I wouldn’t be surprised.We're just gonna end up flying around with a centerline + conformals, I can see it now. Let's start up 1+45 cycles in anticipation.
I’m not sure where/how they ran their numbers but it’s not correct.“The tanks are coming off...”
“Without the CL tank... the fuel numbers are the same”
“You’ll find out you can stay on station and bingo out with everyone else”...
