Design Concept of a Jet Close Support Aircraft (Super COIN) 650235

This paper presents requirements for, and design characteristics of, an aircraft to operate in the tactical-COIN warfare environment of 1968-1970.
The paper discusses the rationale behind the requirements for a tactical jet close-support aircraft engaged in earliest phases of special-air-warfare (SAW) through the lower spectrum of limited war. It shows the need for a new aircraft since present or planned systems do not meet the defined mission requirements. A design concept of a jet close-support aircraft is included.
The design characteristics illustrate that although tactical-COIN mission requirements are demanding they do not pose a serious state-of-the-art challenge in aerospace vehicle technology.
