What Is F7 Aircraft?

Tue Dec 09, 2008 7:20 pm

since I couldn't find any info here, could you please introduce the "F7" to me? Only thing I know, it is supposed to have RollsRoyce engines.

Only two aircraft I could find with an "F7" designation that had Rolls-Royce engines were the Vickers F.7/41, WWII-era single seat fighter, with a similar appearance to the Mosquito, and the Supermarine Swift F7, a 1950s-era jet fighter prototype.

Of course, there is also the USN F7U Cutlass and the Chinese-built F7, a version of the MiG-21, but neither used RR engines.

Reply number 1 probably narrowed down your choices, but do you have any further information other than what you provided?

The Convair F2Y-1 Sea Dart was redesignated F-7 in the 1962 restructuring of aircraft designations, but it was powered by Westinghouse engines.

It was powered by the J34, which was developed from the J30.

However, there is not a lot of info about the J30.

I understand that some aviation technology was passed to the USA and USSR in the immediate post war period. But do not have a lot of detail.
