A number of different powerplant systems have been and are being considered for supersonic V/STOL aircraft. Some of the main features of these different powerplants are described. As a result of studying the results of operation of successful and unsuccessful V/STOL aircraft in the powered lift condition, a number of real requirements for practical and flexible operation can be identified. These requirements may have a profound impact on the design and configuration of the powered lift powerplant. Some of these are discussed and conclusions reached.
