The more I think about it, the more I like a Air Defence Interceptor version of the B-58 (F-58?).  Options for schemes include:

USAF/US ANG
RCAF - got to patrol that arctic wilderness
RAF - a solution for Operational Requirement F.155 and patrolling the GIUK
RAAF - why not?
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

You can't outrun Death forever.
But you can make the Bastard work for it.

From YouTube: Convair video on the first "tactical" B-58 Hustler (aircraft number 31)

Very interesting video thanks Jeffry Fontaine, but although they keep referring to 'the tactical Hustler', they still don't elaborate why it's tactical in nature and intent 😯🤔

Hustler carrying the Grand Slam would be nice to see...

Yes, indeed Jeffry Fontaine....or maybe a derivative of the guided ASM-A-1 (VB-13) Tarzon 🤔
