#1732: MissileMiss

Some missiles which are fired to shoot down jet fighters, can apparently detect the position of the cockit and detonate next to the canopy.

As a countermeasure, today’s invention houses the cockit in one of the engine nacelles of a twin engine fighter. There would still be a decoy cockpit in the fuselage of the plane, as well as another engine.

A more advanced version would allow the cockpit nacelle and its wing to detach and act as a lifeboat for a pilot whose aircraft had been attacked.
