Applications and Engineering Problems of VTOL - STOL Military Aircraft 630036

Viewed against the background of a defense policy which requires the nation to be prepared at any instant to mount military operations ranging from a mere show of force to all out nuclear war, the possible role of V/STOL aircraft in the military organization is examined. A number of potential missions are projected and analyzed in order to obtain an indication of the probable routes of development that will be followed. The still existing technical difficulties and the areas of required research and development are discussed with an eye to eliminating the gap between the initial, or exploratory research, and the final development of a weapons system.
