I found some jet fighter designs that never went into production. All of them have air intakes above the fuselage or wings (albeit not in the same manner).
I'm trying to assess if there'd be any point in making planes like those.
There are almost no real-life examples of small planes with similar placement of air intakes, so maybe it would be too disadvantageous? I know only of A-10 and F-117, but they are both ground attack aircraft. Some say those designs would be prone to engine failure while doing sharp maneuvers with high angle-of-attack in a dogfight. On the other hand, isn't air travelling faster above wing/fuselage?
What do you think? Would there be any point in manufacturing planes like this in real life?
