TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?
From the Internet web site "New Atlas" the article byy Loz Blain February 02, 2022.
"Reno-based Valkyrie Systems Aerospace has received a research grant from the US Air Force to further develop its remarkable HoverJet Guardian concept, which combines electric VTOL and high-speed jet cruise with amphibious and hovercraft capabilities." See the Vimeo video! Takes off and lands vertically powered by electric motors! Foward moment from conventional jet engines allows for trans-sonic speed. Two packages, one manned [large] and one unmanned [small].
See the Vimeo video. Does have the appearance of something from a "Terminator" movie.
Another instance of where one aircraft CAN do it all? Rarely do such concepts ever work as is desired. Tries to everything but ends up doing everything in a mediocre manner.
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
