A smooth variable camber wing system using flexible skins has been designed for fighter and attack airplanes. Comparisons of this system with other systems such as leading edge slats, plain flaps, canards and the box wing illustrate its overall performance superiority. Estimates of the performance improvements which result when smooth curved variable camber flaps are applied to the F-8, F-4, A-7, F-14, and S-3 show that any of these aircraft could benefit from the addition of this system.
