    This is a fantastic idea especially against a much powerful enemy capable of destroying our airbases with overwhelming force . I hope you succeed in making this a reality

    DM has changed, and so has the plane. So now it's MSA.

    wing-body blending is done to reduce interference drag between wing and fuselage of the aircraft. All tubular fuselage aircraft suffer from this. when you blend the wing and body to become one surface like a flying wing, the span efficiency increases, interference drag is eliminated and the whole fuselage and wing become one lifting surface. The net result is outstanding L/D ratio resulting in higher payloads, better cruise efficiency, lower fuel burn and much more streamlined body with lower RCS.

    Sir, have you shown your proposal to NSA? And if yes then how has he responded? Is there any hope for us to see it flying?

    Sir, I am following different defence forums since last 15 years just to see our country getting self dependent in defence. And still waiting. If MSA will fly I will be equally happy as you.

    That's a part of the Swedish air basing doctrine. Could read up on the BAS 60 and BAS 90 systems for inspiration. An inheritance from the days when Sweden had the fourth largest air force in the world.

    @vstol jockey The day LSA/MSA flies I will send you a PM, request your address, and deliver a crate of single malt to you. And if you permit, maybe have a celebratory drink with you as well!!

    Eagerly hoping your dream becomes a reality
