Outstanding treatise on aircraft of this particular venue. I personally prefer piston power aircraft from WWII on and consider myself reasonably able to identify aircraft, but WOW….some of these were new to me. I liked the old Cutlas and was disappointed as I researched them to find them of questionable capability. Thank-you.
As pointed out on Hush_Kit, the Cutlass and Demon could have been a whole lot better had they had decent powerplants. In many respects, they were sophisticated for their day, with missile armament, nuclear capability, all-weather capability etc. Actually, engine problems held a lot of these aircraft back: the immature Python turboprop in the Wyvern, and badly thought-out combination/mixed powerplants in the Fireball and the Yak-38.
