P-51s and a Lavochkin La-9RD

pic unrelated because I ran out of pics of piston aircraft with pulsejets and/or ramjets bolted on.

Lord, love a Leduc!
Designed by René Leduc in 1938, it was built at the Breguet Aviation factory after a protracted, semi-secret construction phase kept at arm's length from German occupation authorities, and was finally completed in 1947. The aircraft featured a double-walled fuselage, with the pilot controlling the aircraft from within the inner shell. The circular gap between this and the outer, cylindrical shell provided the inlet for the ramjet.

Testing: It could not take off unassisted (ramjets cannot produce thrust at zero airspeed and thus cannot move an aircraft from a standstill) and was therefore intended to be carried aloft by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership and released at altitude. Following test flights of the Languedoc/0.10 composite, independent unpowered gliding tests began in October 1947. After three such flights, the first powered flight was made on 21 April 1949 over Toulouse. Released in a shallow dive at an altitude of 3,050 m (10,010 ft), the engine was tested at half power for twelve minutes, propelling the aircraft to 680 km/h (420 mph).

In subsequent tests, the 0.10 reached a top speed of Mach 0.85 and demonstrated the viability of the ramjet as an aviation powerplant, with a rate of climb of 40 m/s (7,900 ft/min) to 11,000 metres (36,000 ft), exceeding that of the best jet fighters of the time.

Of the two 0.10s originally built, one was destroyed in a crash in 1951 and the other severely damaged in another crash the following year. Both pilots survived with serious injuries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leduc_0.10

- French Leduc 0.10 1949 ramjet interceptor carried by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership.
A piloted ramjet, first flown in powered flight on April 21st 1949. As a ramjet needs forward speed to operate, it was carried aloft by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership and released at altitude. In flight testing, it reached speeds as high as M=.85. On display in the Musee de l'Air et de l'Espace. Of the two names on the aircraft, Rene Lorin was the inventor of the ramjet and Jean Villey published the detailed theory of the ramjet. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Leduc-010/1492573/L/

The Hiller YH-32 Hornet (company designation HJ-1) was an American ultralight helicopter built by Hiller Aircraft in the early 1950s. It was a small and unique design because it was powered by two Hiller 8RJ2B ramjet engines mounted on the rotor blade tips which weigh 13lbs each and deliver an equivalent of 45 h.p. for a total of 90 h.p. Versions of the HJ-1 Hornet were built for the United States Army and the United States Navy in the early 1950s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiller_YH-32_Hornet
- Displayed in Museum of Flight in Seattle. This is one of 12 YH-32s acquired by the Army for evaluation in 1955.

The Hiller Museum identifies the YH-32A, named the Sally Rand, as the first helicopter gunship.

What the shit? Looks like a couple of V1 buzz bomb engines.

> How ever even this stunning aircraft was out performed by the new jets of 1944/45 and like the Soviets in an attempt to prolong the live of the "Mustang" as a front-line fighter a pair of Ford PJ-31-1 pulsejets were fitted on to the under side of the wings. The results were similar to the Soviet experiments on piston engined aircraft with added pulsejets, an increase in top speed when in use, but with excessive fuel consumption and high drag when not, the idea was dropped soon after the tests.

Indeed it is.

  There's also the Motorjet (also conceptualized by Rene Lorin) which is where you use a piston engine to run the compressors on a jet engine. Only the Italians and Russians really explored the concept, the Italians with the Campini C.1 aircraft (one of the first jets) and the Russians with the MiG-13, a prop fighter developed as a crash response to the Me 262, which used a turbojet as a booster and was never accepted for service due to being obsolete (by the time they figured out the engine stuff the MiG-9 existed) and having a number of design flaws.
