Parametric investigations were performed to determine constrainst imposed by handling qualities requirements on a VSTOL liftcruise propulsion system when used to provide at least a portion of the vehicle moment control. Primary emphasis was placed on defining the magnitude of engine response time and incremental thrust necessary to satisfy the applicable requirements of the VSTOL Flying Qualities Specification, MIL-F-83300. Where possible the results were normalized by baseline aircraft parameters to eliminate configuration dependence.
