Well it is just a model but it does not feature the revised wing, cockpit or rear step that were a feature of the initial version of the P.122. Also this is a report from Farnborough 1946, a year before the SR.A1 flew and a couple of years before the P.122 project.

About one thing i am sure : the ending of seaplane fighters and jetfighters must be researched in primary role of carriers during and after wwii !
—————————————————————-

Seaplanes were developed primarily to compensate for a shortage of runways. All the concrete runways built during WW2 rendered seaplanes pretty much obsolete after the war.
Also consider that seaplane empty weight is usually double that of landplanes flying the same mission. That huge hull takes a beating landing on any but the calmest water. Water impact forces limit most seaplane operations to calm inland waters.
The best way to limit water impact loads is limiting touch-down speed, but that requires a huge STOL wing and STOL wings are too big for supersonic flight.
