Well, it's more of a B-36 derivative idea, but there apparently was a study done of converting the X-3 for air launch from a XB-60 (apparently gave better clearance than being carried under a B-52 wing).  I could see a NACA/NASA-marked B-60 carrying a manned X-3 or a USAF one carrying an AGM derived from the X-3, but, say, with better engines.

Well there was a turboprop variant (or sorts - actually the VDT which doesn't use a Gas turbine per sae) - the B-36C:

P.S. I have renamed this thread to "B-36 Ideas & Inspiration" so as to encompass all B-36 ideas, not just the racing ones...despite how cool that it.


Six 1/72 A400 engines could be adapted to front of B-36 wing.  OH,,, would like to do that !
