Bill S said:My opinion, which does not mean much, the V356 is closer to what you are describing.
My drawing was based on a Vought predesign sketch that I found in Jay Miller's collection. Rick Koehnen used the same sketch to produce an illustration in the F6U monograph that he did for Steve Ginter.Bill S said:Cool, thanks very much - it looks like a twin engine design, though, not strictly speaking, an F6U derivative.
True, it appears other than an afterburning F6U variant, that most Vought designs of the time morphed into two and three engined versions. I would guess this was due to the limitations of the current generation of jet engines. This was the only "F6U looking" swept wing design that I have uncovered thus far. As time permits the search will continue.
