Description

To operate a fighter from the pitching deck of an aircraft carrier requires a number of significant design considerations including requirements for catapult launching, arrested landings, compactness, and low-speed handling qualities. While World War II was coming to a close, piston-powered fighter aircraft were at their zenith and Navy fighters, such as the Grumman F6F Hellcat and Vought F4U Corsair dominated the skies over the Pacific.

 

As these-fighter designs reached their peak, a new propulsion technology was being developed that held great promise. When introduced the Navy’s first jet aircraft were underpowered, and in many ways inferior to propeller-driven aircraft of the time. For the first time, U.S.

 

Naval Air Superiority profiles the turbulent design and development stage of the Navy’s carrier-based jet 1 fighter program and discusses the evolution and development of aircraft with a flight envelope ranging from a slow speed carrier approaches to supersonic intercepts …

 

This book also looks at successful designs, such as the fury, banshee, Crusader, and Phantom II, to the also-rans, like the fireball, Tiger, Pirate, and cutlass aircraft developed when the Navy’s needs were measured against the contractor and political, ’, demands and against the limits of the evolving engine and aerodynamic technologies of the day.

 

U.S. Naval Air Superiority examines the Navy’s internal struggle to adapt jet-powered planes to its style of warfare as well as the development and evolution of carrier-borne fighters, their airframes and engines, from the closing days of World War II through Vietnam.
