asteroza + n+3   1
Apparently did some research work for NASA recently that found a N+2 design for a non-superconducting turboelectric propulsion that actually closed and was usable, roughly on par with an existing 737. Uses strut braced midspan turbogenerators feeding power to the inboard wing span, which is stuffed with wing internal embedded electric propulsors. Though the design used tech that while it exists today, exists outside of the aerospace realm so requires further development. They also have a superconducting N+3 design too.
