History:.
Designed by M.K.Tikhonravov the 302 was a conventional aircraft apart from it's engines, a rocket in the tail and two ramjets slung under the wings in aerodynamic pods with rectangular variable exhausts. In 1943 after delays with the rocket engine and the ramjet, it was decided to test the 302 in a glider form(302P), after several flights and wind tunnel tests the aircraft was perfected. But the 302 never took to the air under power
