The com­pany used to be based by way of Leroy Kandle Grumman and 5 different aeronautical engineers and businessmen.Their early designs have been leading edge and incorporated the 1st army air-craft with retractable touchdown equipment and the 1st army glide airplane with its personal retract­able touchdown equipment (creating a brand new classification of plane — the amphibian). Grumman's layout for the folding wing (later to be referred to as the sto-wing) that lowered the span of the folded wing to that of the horizontal stabilizer, made it attainable to hold extra plane on a car­rier. those and different thoughts put G rum guy within the leading edge of U.S. army plane creation through the Thirties. whilst the second one international struggle all started.

With TV-12s 'Aircraft 96's service ceiling was 40,682ft (12,400m) and range 9,323 miles (15,000km); the equivalent estimated figures for TV-16s w e r e 55,118ft (16,800m) and 10,441 miles (16,800km) and the later units also offered a maximum speed of 561mph (902km/h). The only aircraft to be completed was used for research and experimental purposes until the end of the decade but the bureau did assess a variant intended to carry and launch the 'Aircraft 100' bomber (Chapter 5). After release from its carrier aircraft, the '100' would proceed to a point where it could launch a nuclear weapon at its target and then return to base under its own power.

3kN). Above this height the jet thrust would also decay but, until then, the RVD's total thrust actually increased with altitude. All of this work was brought together under the designation 'Aircraft 99' and the configurations examined also included buried engines, but the version with four pylonmounted units proved to be the most efficient. Using the VD-7, the '99's estimated range was between 7,458 and 8,080 miles (12,000km to 13,000km), which was superior to that claimed for the Myasishchev M-4 jet bomber (below), and estimated maximum speed 590mph to 622mph (950km/h to 1,000km/h).

Before the first real Soviet heavy bomber arrived, the Tupolev Tu-16 described shortly, two other medium bomber types w e r e produced. ruptions from the 140 programme (above) but wind tunnel testing was completed in October of that year. size until it was covered by a brief W S specification which requested a take-off weight between 83,7741b (38,000kg) and 103,6161b (47,000kg). This put the bomber's dimensions between the 11-28 and Tupolev's n e w 'Aircraft 88' (Tu-16). Just the one prototype was ordered and this flew on 14th May 1951 having been completed within the May 1951 deadline.
