In the new Trait d'Union magazine (#270) is an article about the Turboclair ground device made with French Vampire. A Burnelli-Lightning derivative would have been efficient (against fog) for a much longer duration:

A twin-"plane" would have an improved volume coverage:

Far from ground devices, the very first designs of jet-aircraft had to deal with 2 commands : several units as the power was low, lots of tank room because jets were eating much. The Burnelli layout was good for that:

Pulse jets are not atomic engines, they may be closer to the pilot:

The UB-38BV-1 above found no purchaser, all customers being afraid of a flying-wing design and of a single asymmetric engine. Blohm und Voss thus designed the UB-38BV-2 below, still with Burnelli's aproval:

For marketing reasons, the Blohm und Voss catalogue needed an UB-38BV-3 so it shoulda be designed:

Even more simplified, to show better the Burnelli-Lightning lines:
