Republic XF-91 Thunderceptor

Republic XF-91 Thunderceptor

The Thunderceptor was a prototype supersonic interceptor, designed to rapidly engage high-flying enemy bombers. It was the first U.S. fighter to break the speed of sound, and it was a revolutionary design for its time.

The reverse-swept wings combated the violent pitch-up that occurred on swept-wing fighters passing through transonic speeds, and it featured a variable-incidence wing (unfortunately, the XF-91 is too small to have a mechanism like my F8U) and rocket packs to accelerate through a climb.

Due to the rapid development of jet engines, the thunderceptor was obsolete by the time it would have entered service, so only two prototypes were built.
