I'm not super familiar with the canard variants that are out there but they "seem" like the a easiest platform for integrating a big power V-8. Plenty of fuselage/wing cross section to hide the engine within, and a now superfluous rear passenger seat to hold "stuff" that goes with keeping 1500 alive for 10 minutes (ADI tank, etc). With that premise, I'm guessing the Berkut is about the strongest and cleanest (happy to be corrected if not the case). So what would it take to get a Burkut to 450 down the straights? Is the structure even capable of those speeds, and what level of HP would be needed?
