Icare9, I think that record should have gone to the proposed HS 141, which had 8 lift engines each side and 1 propulsion engine under each wing ! So any offers above 18 ! Keith.
IIRC, TSR2 would have been given VTOL capability by being launched from a platform powered by about 70 engines. OEI performance wasn`t bad though...
