Hi everyone,

Including the well known Russian conversions of piston fighters to jets, I wanted to see if anyone had anything on other similar conversions that could be in a nicely consolidated thread of "piston-to-jet theory." :p

Thanks!

I was considering that, but I was more or less focusing (I guess I should've said first) on fighters, notably WW2 era fighters like the Yak-9 being converted into jets. I wasn't too sure if that really meant postwar. If there was a WW2 specific forum, I would've gone with that.

What about Kyūshū J7W Shinden? Was the jet conversion just an idea, or was something more done about it?

Indeed, fits perfectly here, we had it here http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,16914.msg163913.html#msg163913

This thread starts to be a jumble of pre- and post war types, projects and actually built aircraft. Nevertheless, I would
suggest to keep on here in this section. Types already dealt with can be mentioned with a link, others with description
or picture, so we should get quite a complete list in the end.

We are mainly talking about actually built types here, nevertheless, according to Jean Cuny "Les
Avions Des Combat Francais" a modification of the SNCASO SO 8000 Narval naval fighter to a
jet fighter, powered by a RR Nene engine was proposed, but rejected, as there already were three
other types of naval jet fighters under development.
