North American FJ-1 (F-1) Fury

The FJ was a relative of the F-86 Sabre, but the relationship between the types was far more complex than one being a derivative of another. The FJ-1 was the straight-winged ancestor of the F-86, and because its performance was disappointing only 31 were built and it had a brief service life. The FJ-2 was completely different, a novelized version of the F-86E. 200 were built, but all delivered to the USMC for shore-based operation. The later FJ-3 was a further development, powered by the J65 (the British Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire). It had a deeper fuselage and folding wings. 538 were built. The FJ-4 again had very little in common with its precursors: both wing and fuselage were completely new. 372 were built
