Will there ever be ramjets in game for countries other than USSR?  And if so, what might they be for each country?  Such as ...

 

USA

-- P-51 was tested with ramjets

 

USSR

-- I-153 DM-4 (IV)

-- La-9RD (VII)

-- Kostikov 302 (VII)

-- Yak-7 PVRD

 

GERMANY

-- Focke-Wulf Ta 283

-- Focke-Wulf Triebflügel

-- Škoda-Kauba P14

 

JAPAN

-- Kayaba Katsuodori (VII est.) -- this is the transitional design between the Ki-44 interceptor (tier V-VI est.) and the rocket-powered Ki-200 and Ki-202 (Japanese Army counterpart to Japanese Navy's J8M)

 

UK

-- Spitfire ramjet project 1944

 

CHINA

-- 

 

EUROPE

France

--  "Before the outbreak of [WW2] France had been one of the leaders in ramjet research through the work of Rene Leduc and Henri Melot.  This was contrary to the country's knowledge of rocket engines, which was almost all 'imported' from Germany after the war.  However, some 'imported' ramjet knowledge from German engineers Sanger and Pabst von Ohain certainly boosted efforts for further development ..."

-- Leduc 011 -- 1939 fighter
-- Leduc 012 -- 1939 bomber
-- Leduc 010-01 -- non-military version, subcontracted to Breguet; hidden during the war
-- Leduc 010-02 -- FF 03/27/1950; ramjet flight 04/04/1950.
-- Leduc 015
-- Leduc 016
-- Leduc 020 -- "Ordered by Contract 2001/48, this was to be the prototype for a subsonic interceptor capable of reaching [15,000m] in less than 4 minutes.  Only a moderate speed of Mach 0.87 was requested and [2x30mm + unguided rockets] were outlined as the armament.  The aircraft was to be launched using a wheeled booster chariot ... not built because by 1950 the design had evolved sufficiently further to warrant a new designation."
-- Leduc 021 - 2x30mm DEFA 541 + 40 unguided SNEB anti-aircraft rockets in a revolving launch rack [in fuselage] and another 24 rockets [under the wings]; remained experimental; prototype 01 FF 08/07/1953; prototype 02 03/01/1954; reached speed Mach 0.89 [1090 km/h]

-- Arsenal VG 93 -- VG 90 with wingtip ramjets

I definitely hope they do at least one of the Leduc ones.

And that Triebwehrabooword thingie.
