Even better if they'd had the little-known and underrated Skylancer.

COOOL!! This one requires a release!!

 

BTW, what is a Skylancer?

A beautifully streamlined Skyray but supersonic (Mach 1.4 on the same J57 engine). It just came to fruition at the same time at the Crusader and failed to get an order : (

don't forget, in Real Life ™, Navy Skyrays WERE attached to ADC

I know. This was a reply made by me on my long-running thread on the 'what if' modelers website.
 

 

Spinners, how about a USAF ADC Skyray?
 
I'm not really a request show but that's a good call as the Skyray was a fast-climbing interceptor and VF-3 was, in fact, the only USN squadron to serve with NORAD winning the NORAD Trophy in 1957 and 1958.
