    F-102 Development

    The Convair F-102A Delta Dagger single-seat all-weather interceptor was the first delta-winged combat aircraft in the world to enter operational service. It was also the world's first all-weather interceptor capable of supersonic performance in level flight and it was provided with an all missile armament.

    After the end of the Second World War in Europe, relations between the US and the Soviet Union underwent a rapid deterioration. As a result, of this a board of senior officers, organized a meeting at Muroc AFB, California in October 1948.During this meeting the commission authorized the develop- ment of a new fighter, that would be designated F-94A. A contract for the Curtiss F-87A was cancelled in November of 1948, and the production of 48 Northrop F-89As was authorized on January 10, 1949. Therefore a development of an interceptor version of the F-86A Sabre was recommended in January of 1949, and work on the resulting F-86D was started in March of 1949. However it soon became evident, the North American F-86D Sabre, the Northrop F-89 Scorpion, and the Lockheed F-94 were all subsonic aircraft, and were deemed to have not insufficient potential to be able to meet the threat. At the end of the meeting at Muroc Air Base (nowadays known as Edwards Air Force Base), the board of senior officers recommended that the USAF has to organize a totally new competition to design a new all-weather interceptor. This project came to be known as the "1954 interceptor", after the year that new interceptor would be entering service. This aircraft should have a complete new weapons system. Project MX-1179 was the designation given to that portion of the project which was dedicated to the armament and electronic fire-control system of the 1954 Interceptor. The airframe part of the project was designated MX-1554. Proposals for the airframe were requested by the Air Force in 1950.

    When the bidding closed in January of 1951, nine proposals had been submitted by six different manufacturers. Republic submitted three separate proposals, North American two and single proposals came from Douglas, Lockheed, Change-Vought and Convair. The Convair entry in the MX-

    1554 project was closely related to the experimental XF-92A, which Convair had already built in 1948 to provide data for the proposed F-92 Mach 1.5 fighter. The XF-92A had been the first powered delta- winged aircraft to fly. On September 11, 1951, Convair received a contract for its delta winged design and the winner of the contest for all practical purposes, was designated F-102 .

  • with a large squadron badge and 497FIS was only the squadron badge disposed on the tail. During mid 1963, these sunburst tail markings were removed. For almost a year the F-102's flew with gray tails. In early 1964, the aircraft were provided with a colored tail band, the 86th AD insigna was added to the starboard side of the tail and the squadron badge was seen on the port side of the tail. Already in late 1965 the first aircraft were painted in the so called "Vietnam" camouflage, consisting of Tan, Dark Green and Medium Green.
