XP-79B Flying Ram
Katalog Nummer: 92257
The XP-79 it would be powered by tow XCALR-200A-1 rocket engines to give the plane an extreme climbrate to make it able to climb to 40,000 feet. At 40,000 feet the plane would dive into a formation of enemy aircraft at an estimated speed of up to 875 km/h and clip their wings or tail surfaces with its own reinforced wings, for this reason they gave the XP-79 the nickname: "Flying Ram".
The pilot would operate the aircraft from a prone position, permitting the pilot to withstand much greater g-forces in the upward and downward direction. The pilot controlled the XP-79 through a tiller bar and rudders mounted below; intakes mounted at the wingtips supplied air for the unusual bellows-boosted ailerons.
