The Vought F7U Cutlass was a semi-tailless design, in fact, the final design from Vought engineer Rex Beisel, who had also designed the U.S. Navy’s first fighter in 1922. The Cutlass earned a bad reputation due to the under-powered nature and poor reliability of the two J-35’s used in the design, and was relatively scarce, serving from 1951 to 1959 with only 320 examples produced. An all-weather variant was proposed, but the fact that the engines tended to flame out in rain killed this vision quickly.
Supposedly, the design was derived from techniques and models from the German Arado company, although Vought denied any ties.
This replica can take off at a very carrier-friendly 25 m/s, and has an incredibly short landing roll, if approach is done with a high angle of attack. Otherwise, it handles very well, turning sharply and having good albeit subsonic straight-line speed.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
