No you cant fit a larger diameter in a smaller diameter engine bay.
So whoever was tweeting that stuff was smoking double distilled stuff.
And chetak pointed it out in this page.
Ramana-ji, that is what logic tells me as well.
But how does one reconcile the fact that the Rafale A flew with a F404-GE-400 engine in 1986?
Was the engine bay diameter larger in the Rafale A (prototype) than in the production variants (Rafale C/B/M)?
Diameter difference between F404-GE-400 engine and the M88 engine is 7.6 inches! What kind of jadoo
did Dassault do?
In airframe design, adding or removing 7.6++ inches to an engine bay diameter has implications no?
