The SF-318 is a fighter-interceptor aircraft. For improve speed added two pulse jet engines at stabilizer tips.

Why pulse jets? They're really maintenance-heavy, and can't really be throttle-controlled.

I want "alternative-history" craft, early jet age, when turbojet are expensive and unreliable. And cheap modernization of piston fighters to improve their speed to same level as first jet.
May be ram-jet was better... Although general shape of ram-jet and pulse-jet doesn't strongly difference - I may only edit description to change engine)))

Pulse jets would work better, though, because a ramjet requires fairly high speeds to work to begin with.

This airplane also have piston engine, I think 600 km/h - enough for start ramjet.

I will concede that, but until it reaches the speed at which it can use the ramjet, said ramjet will just be extra weight and drag.
