Chance-VoughtAis F7U Cutlass was inspired by design data retrieved from GermanyAis Arado Company at the end of WWII. To avoid extreme nose-down forces, the Cutlass was a Aitail-lessAi aircraft. Its swept wings had vertical fins and AiailevatorAi control surfaces. Although intended to operate at up to Mach .95, the aircraft was hampered by under- powered Westinghouse turbojets, and its nose-up profile made carrier landings dangerous. Although its in-flight performance was acceptable, the Navy initially rejected the plane as unfit for carrier use. While nearly 200 F7U-3s were eventually delivered, they were retired only five years after their introduction.
