Yep...the first Lockheed program for this series called "Archangel" in house. These were single seat aircraft.  And as you said they led to the YF-12a interceptor, then to the SR-71 two seaters.  I believe there were 18 made and a couple were lost throughout the program.  Here's a link to Wikipedia: Click Here

Ok, what have you got for us?

Okay.  Lockheed A-12.  The CIA called the project Oxcart.  It led to the YF-12a interceptor, the M-21 drone launch vehicle, and the SR-71 Blackbird.(originally called the RS-71, but president Johnson misnamed it in a press conference.)

YF-12 high altitude "fighter".  There's one in the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH.

Must think their propulsion system is pretty reliable!!! As Ian pointed out it's not internal combustion... Shocked Roll Eyes

I love the shape though!

That configuration certainly shows a lot of confidence in the reliability of the drivetrain...

It kind of reminds me of the 1936 "Things to Come" movie.

Wow! Pusher props on the wingtips! I'd like to see how they handle an 'engine out' emergency! Found it. And its electric too. Someone else can identify it.
