Description

McDonnell’s F2H Banshee began as a follow-on to the FH Phantom program, already on the drawing board before the FH was being produced. Its design was thoroughly revised; fitting more powerful Westinghouse J-34’s to the wing-mounted engine nacelles, strengthening the fuselage, adding fuel capacity, and eliminating the profound dihedral of the tail surface were all parts of revision. It had, for its time, an astonishing climb rate of around 9,000 ft/min / 2743 m/min, twice that of the piston-engined aircraft it replaced. The Banshee enjoyed a fair service life of 14 years, last serving in 1962 with the Royal Canadian Navy. The basic design/aesthetics of the Banshee would later be used in early development stages of the XF-88/F-101 Voodoo. The initial concept for the Voodoo was similar in theory to the way Grumman applied a swept wing to the F9F Panther, but the design eventually evolved far beyond that of Grumman’s. this replica is fast for a straight-wing design, reaching 310m/s in a dive, and handling well. It also has plenty of range; circumnavigation is possible. Version shown here is the F2H-2P, with an elongated nose for photo-reconnaissance.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

Here you will find everything that trails black smoke, jettisons fuel, and runs on liquid oxygen and ammonia. Oh, 20th Century aviation development, where art thou?
