The Vought F7U Cutlass swept flying wing design had a large central nacelle and two substantial vertical tail surfaces. The first U.S. fighter designed from the start to use afterburners.

After 14 F7U-1's, the Cutlass was in production for the U.S. Navy in 1966 as the F7U-3 interceptor and F7U-3P photo-reconnaissance aircraft with lengthened nose containing cameras.
