I would like the title of that excellent book on early Soviet SAM systems. I notice that Wright Field is missing. They were a massive assembly of departments who studied captured German aircraft during and right after the war. They have documents related to German surface to air missiles. And captured documents related to German ejection seats.
I already got the Air Force Historical Center to give me electronic copies of stuff I wanted.

Your reply drips with bias. On the back cover of the book The Horten Flying Wing in World War II by H.P. Dabrowski, there are two photos: one shows the H VII, and the other, the B-2. The caption states: "Forty-five years lie between these two photographs!"
Although the Northrop B-2 has the same wingspan as the B-35 and B-49, it should be noted that Lockheed was the first company to propose stealthy flying wings for the US Air Force. The first Lockheed flying wing aircraft designed to use stealth was envisaged in early 1978 for the BSAX (Battlefield Surveillance Aircraft-Experimental) competition that was won by the Northrop N-345/AP-1 Tacit Blue, and also in 1978 Lockheed began design studies for a stealthy flying wing bomber under codename Senior Peg (Northrop's Senior Ice/Senior Cejay design studies for what would become the B-2 were initiated in 1979).

Thank you. That was helpful.
