Chance Vought F7U-1 Cutlass. Naval Fighters 94. Book by Tommy H. Thomason. In 1946, the Navy embarked on the development of the Chance Vought F7U-1 Cutlass, a high-performance, carrier-based jet fighter that would be equal, if not superior, to any land-based fighter. It was tailless for compactness and weight reduction and incorporated afterburning jet engines for transonic speed performance and unparalleled rate of climb. This is a detailed account of how its bright promise went unrealized because the technology required to fulfill it was not yet mature. Illustrated with more than 200 pictures, many previously unpublished and almost 70 illustrations, most created specifically for this monograph; 128 pages.
