Abstract:

To a great extent, the maneuverability of a supersonic fighter is determined by the value of the maximal available overloads which vary in relation to the flight speed and height. In its turn, the maximal available overload is affected by the maximally permissible value of lift coefficient and the reserve Csubscript y--ranging from the balancing value in straight flight to the maximally permissible value. Satisfactory parameters of stability and controllability are retained in the delta-wing fighters under conditions of aerodynamic buffeting. Author
