WOW ...looks like somebody needed the extra angle of incidence on the cat shot...shades of F7U ...
This is a very nice design exercise, but McAir was fighting a valiant uphill battle from the start. The conversion of land based aircraft to carrier based has few (successful) precedents. Aside from one-offs, like U-2 and C-130 (oh, and B-25s!), when was the last time that the US Navy had an air force plane operate regularly off their decks? I am actually drawing a blank here, even going as far back as WWII.
