Hi!
Who can suggest the names/drawings of aircraft whose fuselage shape is similar to the MiG-15/17, Yak-30D/19/25(the first one), FMA I.Ae. 33 Pulqui II (cigar-shaped)?
(sorry for google translation))

It would take a long time to find the complete answer and it's not necessarily evident to say what has or doesn't have "cigare shape". Some examples :

In France, there were at least :
-Dassault Ouragan,
-Dassault Mystère II
-Dassault Mystère IV.

-Leduc 011, 016, 021
-Leduc 022

-SFECMAS/Nord Gerfaut (1402, 1405), (not completly "cigare shape")


In Sweden :
-Saab Ja-29 Tunnan (but maybe not really "cigar shape" because of the rear of the frame and the tail)


In USA, at least
-Republic F-84 Thunderjet
-Republic F-84 F Thunderstreak

-North American FJ-1 Fury and maybe the derivatives (FJ-2, 3 and 4) and
-North American F-86, if you consider that they had cigare Shape

-Convair XF-92

-Douglas D-558


In Britain, at least :
-Gloster E.28/39

-Fairey FD-1


in Netherlands
-Fokker S.14 (more trainer than fighter)


In Russia there were a big lot (including prototypes) of aircraft with cigare shape : go to wikipedia and search on
-a lot of MiG,
-a lot of Sukhoi
-a lot of Lavochkin
-a lot of Yak (among others the Yak-1000)
-surely other russian builders.

I think you can add the P-80 Shooting Star and T-33 to the list as well. They look like an uncut cigar

Is this thread specific to cigar shaped aircraft? I've been thinking about dorito shaped aircraft for some time.

So far I have:

Avro Vulcan
Concorde
Mirage III/2000/4000

Any more?
