Check this out, Russians already copied the F-35!

Wait, they made YAK VTOLs in the 70's and 80's.
>>

Fun fact, if you look for the patent for the AvroCar, it was already known that it wouldn't fly.

Whenever someone designs a saucer, they think a lot on how to make it float, but they forget that flying means going to a direction at speed (ruining the floating capability).

Ah, the F-104 VTOL that could've been...

I've never found out why the Dornier-31 never went into production...looks legit, even used Harrier engines. With the later engines, it could've done away with those extra engine pods. With a fleet of these in the 70s, we may not have bothered building the Osprey. Maybe use 'em in Desert One...nevermind, no aircraft could save that disaster from happening.

It doesn't look like a very practical design, just from a user-end standpoint
>>
>>916187
Well, if Wikipedia's to be believed, it generated a ton of drag and was too heavy. It was probably complex as fuckall and a nightmare for maintainers, too.

Lockheed actually worked with Yakovlev to develop the F-35B's lift fan and thrust vectoring system, which explains many of the commonalities.

I love the look of this goofy thing, it looks like something out of one of those "THE FUTURE IS NOW" magazines from the 50s, and it's a direct ancestor to the V-22
