Some RW Sabre design information.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Thinking of an F-86K with F-86L wing and Canadair Sabre Mk.6 engine fit as a "low" part of a "high-low" interceptor mix for Canada, and possibly others.

I was thinking Canuckistan K with Sabre 6 wings, no tip extension.

I think FireStreak missile trial is the one being thought of:




Yep that one, I blame the drugs!


Found this video.  De Havilland Firestreak Guided Missile (1957): https://youtu.be/CGaMYfyLwD8

Goto 1:50 to see the F-86 portion.

Very cool!

A very simple what if, a productionised version of the trail configuration becomes an interim RAAF night and all weather fighter.  Sqn sizes are increased for each to incorporate a flight of Avon Sabre FAW.

Makes me wonder why F-86D's weren't acquired more

Or the F-86K used more widely.  I think I'd rather have the cannons than the retractable rocket cells.  You could still update the wing to carry desired AAM's (Sidewinder, Firestreak, et al.).  For a somewhat "out there" whif, and RAF variant of the F-86K with the Fairey Skyflash.

Yes the K, a much better idea -- :smiley:   Now I have something to put that Tauro kit to good use ---

What about a FJ Fury derived from the F-86D Sabre Dog?  Maybe even have one with a pair of Sparrow missiles...
