It’s all about the Jets….

 

World of Warplanes have released the La-9 RD.  The new Tier VII fighter is equipped with two pulsejets, providing advantages in speed and dynamic parameters.

The aircraft is available for a limited time on the World of Warplanes premium store.

Brief History in Time
This is not something we usually cover, but this arrangement was actually used on the real aircraft.  The production La-9 was fitted with a reinforced airframe and a single RD-13 pulsejet was fitted under each wing.  The 70 km/h (45 mph) increase in top speed came at the expense of tremendous noise and vibration and the engines were unreliable and worsened the handling.  The project was abandoned, but between 3 and 9 La-9RD were made.
