Artist's Description

3d art render of US Navy F11f Tiger Jet aircraft.
Made with bryce 3d.

The Tiger single-seat fighter flew for the first
time in prototype form on 30 July 1954 – less
than 15 months after receipt of a letter of
intent from the US Navy. The production
version was the F11F-1. A small number of pre
production aircraft, each with a Wright J65
W-6 turbojet engine with afterburner, were f
ollowed by 39 production aircraft (ordered
with J65-W-4 afterburning engines), two of
which were modified to F11F-1F standard with
66.72kN General Electric J79-GE-7
afterburning engines. One of the F11F-1Fs
attained a speed of 1,963km/h and set a short-
lived height record on 18 April 1958 of
23,449m
A further contract for J65-W-18-engined Tigers
placed for the US Navy brought the total
number of F11F-1s built to about 200, but these
were gradually phased out of first-line service
from 1959. Those which remained in second-
line service when the tri-service designations
became rationalised in 1962 were redesignated
F-11A.
