The US version of the NEO-Shinden which was.... erm, something backwards, the name is a word spelt backwards, the nickname at least. dranac?? or was it something ruder.....
forget it's offical name too.

the first one looks like it was based on a similar German design which had a slowley rotating table at it's heart, the fuel on this table would burn and push the jet along. very strange.

Just a hunch.
