Trumpeter American F-106B “Triangle Javelin” interceptor 01683
The Convair F-106 “Triangle Javelin” interceptor is considered one of the best interceptors in the history of the US Air Force. It has served the US Air Force since the 1960s until the 1980s. For more than 29 years of service, it has been the main all-weather interceptor of the US Air Force and the US Air National Guard. It is the main “dance partner” of the Russian Tu-95 “Bear” strategic bomber.
The F-106 “Triangle Javelin” was developed by the Convair F-102 “Triangle Dagger” series of interceptors, and its equipped Pratt & Whitney J-75-P-17 engine provides even more powerful power. So that it can reach the extreme speed of 2 Mach. The newer size of the new engine also means an increase in the size of the aircraft. The bomb chamber below the belly can accommodate four AIM-4 “Falcon” air-to-air missiles and one AIR-2 rocket. The F-106 prototype first flew on December 26, 1956, and began service in June 1959. A total of 277 single-seat A models were completed.
