It is a convention al afterburning
turbojet for takeoff and transonic flight, and it approximates a ramjet during high-speed supersonic cruise.
type 3--'idle throttle'--'maximum' or 'afterburning

Open sources state that the aircraft may be more expensive than the rival M-346 or Hawk ML128/T2 AJT/LIFTs (see above), and its afterburning
turbofan likely puts an additional strain on maintenance requirements.
The F-22's sustained supersonic speed (without afterburning
) is officially quoted at Mach 1.5 but is believed to be somewhat higher.
What are the future trends in afterburning
The author states that the operational life of the engines was degraded because of "excessive afterburning
that overheated the engine oil and fused and jammed the bearings." Since when did pisten-engine, propeller-driven aircraft sport an afterburner?
engines are always impressive to watch at night as the blue flame extends twenty feet behind the tail and the vibration seems to shake your whole body.
"Fluidics allows you to do this without losing any afterburning
or thrust vectoring functionality."
A lead-in fighter trainer version of the L-15 with afterburning
engines and supersonic capability is projected.
