Tactical Fs were fitted with shoulder rails on the four inner swiveling pylons to mount AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles for self-defense. Multiple advanced FB strategic bomber designs were proposed by General Dynamics in the s. The remaining FBs were subsequently reconfigured for tactical use and redesignated FG. They were used primarily for training. Deliveries were delayed due to avionics issues. Fuel tanks were often carried on the third non-swivelling pylon of each wing.

Early studies indicated that the best option was to base the design on the Air Force requirement, and use a modified version for the Navy. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. With Air Force’s Advanced Manned Strategic Aircraft program proceeding slowly, and concerns of fatigue failures in gestetnre B fleet, the service needed an interim bomber quickly. The avionics were upgraded on some E-models as part of an Avionics Modernization Program. Each pylon had a capacity of 5, pounds 2, kilograms.
Various bombs and missiles bestetner be carried on the pylons. Each wing was equipped with four underwing pylons. The Missileer was designed to carry six long-range missiles and loiter for five hours, but would be defenseless after firing its missiles.
The evaluation group found all the proposals lacking, but Boeing and General Dynamics were selected to submit enhanced designs. During Desert Storm, FFs completed 3. Its design influenced later variable-sweep wing aircraft, and some of its advanced features have since become commonplace. Although it was tested with digital moving-target indicator MTI capacity, it was not used in production sets.

Auxiliary fuel drop tanks with US gallons 2, litres capacity each could be fitted. F Aardvark Walk Around. The FB was canceled by the Navy t due to weight and performance issues, along with the need for additional fighter requirements. Both companies provided updated proposals in April The F was an all-weather attack aircraft, capable of low-level penetration of enemy defenses to deliver ordnance on the target.
The variant was first ordered in and delivered from March Field Air Museum. Data from Miller,  Donald . Boyne, Walter JAir Warfare: The F was the first production variable-geometry wing aircraft.

F, Modern Fighting Aircraft, Vol. It took years to improve the reliability of the avionics, but issues were never fully addressed.
The Boeing aircraft shared less than half of the major structural components.
