Heh, why do you think I married a German woman?
Lockheed accidentally designed one of the best workhorse research jets when they were intending to make a 2nd generation interceptor/fighter, and then marketed it as a fighter-bomber. It’s about as Buck Rogers as we’re ever going to get unless you include limited-production rocket-planes like the X-15.
I challenge you to find a jet that can sustain turn rate better than the Starfighter above Mach 1.2
I didn’t think I was ever gonna stop laughing at this
Yes, that is where all the turn fighting happens. Oh wait…
The lawndart sure has a perverse kind of appeal. The number of pilots that found an untimely death in it, though, it just wasn’t the right tool for the job, especially not for what the Germans used it.
I guess Germans don’t like one trick ponys
