The F-106 is a badass plane. When I was a kid I lived next to an Air Force base with 106's, and every now and then they'd scramble a dozen of them at 2:00 AM. Then 20 minutes later they'd come coasting in making that weird howl sound they make.

Takeoffs were loud. Then they'd hit afterburner with a BOOoooom.

Im gonna throw in the F4 Phantom, because it was developed in the late 50's. Still one of the meanest baddest looking planes ever built. This ideology of the 50's was speed speed speed, maneuverability be dam, it's all about mach #'s, and missiles.

>expecting the state to be able to manage something effectively

After all it just took them a couple of hundred crashes before they stopped overloading them!

Isn't this also a problem with the Eurofighter as well nowadays? You can't fully equip it or it won't take off and the F-35 loses its stealth capabilities if it is fully equipped. Even back in the day they couldn't stop themselves from turning the Me 262 into a bomber!

They can't resist the idea of an jack of all trades, the eierlegende Wollmilchsau.
