The Crusader was a carrier-based fighter developed in the 1950's to replace the F-7 Cutlass. In September 1952, United States Navy announced a requirement for a new fighter. It was to have a top speed of Mach 1.2 at 30,000 ft with a climb rate of 25,000 ft/min and a landing speed of no more than 100 mph. Unusual for a fighter, the aircraft had a high-mounted wing which allowed for short and light landing gear.
