Byt3Games: I wonder if this engine would be good for a long range interceptor or maybe a long range interceptor/strike fighter?

HeyItsChris: Yeah those variable geometry inlets where probably the first of their kind and most utilized than any other aircraft. They are like a car's secondary intake butterflies, which under low air speed and low engine speed we close 4 of the 8 runners. Which increases air inlet velocity increasing propulsion rate in a normally low propulsion scenario. Once we start moving and the high speed air around the vehicle and engine increases and the engine speed increases with it. We would then open all 8 runners to reduce and alleviate excessive velocity and increase volume. Volume of air at speed is high so we can achieve now far better performance. Those SR-71 J58 inlets though can, do, will, and have laughed at Mach 3.2 air with proper tuning. As any SR-71 Pilot knows they weren't able to see what it was truly capable of except 2 or 4 pilots being pilot and rso. They surpassed Russian's rocket powered super high speed high altitude missiles of their typical speed of 3,420 Miles Per Hour and the SR-71 left them in the dust so consider that one everyone!
