Some structural ideas and cold war comparisons

Size is relative as you can see. Really small soviet LA-15 is almost in even terms with much bigger F-86. Whereas even smaller Folland GNAT beats them both. Intented 15.1 kN engine for GM-1 may be too small alone ( thus the 2 x 6 kN rockets ).

Above is an interesting comparison since LA-15 only had 15.9 kN engine ( similar to GM-1 )this power divided by the size factor would yield 8.55 kN to be even with 1025 km/h LA-15. Amazing isn't it ?

Both GM-1 and LA-250 in the same scale !
