Convair Super Hustler: Going in Circles.

Convair Super Hustler: Going in Circles.

A Convair’s proposal to the USAF for a high performance parasite (or ground launched) bomber-recon aircraft. This Super Hustler study (here were others) was composed of two parts: a manned one at the front with a ramjet engine and a rear winged booster (bomb-equipped in the bomber version) powered by two ramjets. Ironically the Super Hustler’s proposed mothership was the Convair Hustler, an evolution of a very similar parasite bomber concept.
This project derived into the even more complex and secret FISH.
