  1. Convair MX-1964 Proposed Supersonic Bomber (B-58 Initial Studies)
  2. X-Plane is the best program I can think of off the top of my head to render/test aircraft, but: Acquiring it legally costs money There is a learning curve to using it. I haven't used in a while, and from what I remember it was fairly complex (it's been a few years since I used it). As with the tank design, I think if we did a plane contest 1930s-1940s would be best. Having to design radar systems, electronics, supersonic aerodynamics, and all that would rapidly get too complex. Like the last contest, but worse.
  3. Big if true. Would ask for an additional source besides Fox, but getting religious info out of Iran is hard so :shrug:?

  13. Found a powerpoint about the M-290, which is the new canister used to handle US Navy spent nuclear fuel; https://www.nrc.gov/docs/ML0932/ML093200020.pdf Surprised how much is declassified, but it's on the NRC site so it must be legit. They even have a picture of the overpack building! (slide 18)
