Its not stuff I have seen before so thanks for sharing. I suspect two reasons why non of them were realised was is that:

1 they are still having troubles with scram jet design.

and more fundamentally

2 Piggy back systems tend to work better when the smaller one in on top the larger one not vice versa. :wink: :twisted:

I suggested this but shuttle on top in 2003..without knowing about this concept at all.
