Topics merged. Please remember that the search engine is not very intelligent, so type the full designation "XF8B-1" next time...

The F8B-1 is one of my personal favorites; because it's just so... audacious. Build a fighter around the biggest piston engine ever put into true mass production -- the R4360, and then demand that it fly a 850 nautical mile (!!) combat radius in the standardized late war fighter design mission with wing drop tanks and an internal bomb bay fuel tank.

Splendid, Ryan! I like the F8B very much too. Jared's book on the subject is fantastic... Do you have it?
