  TextEN  The Vought F7U Cutlass was a jet-powered fighter of US Navy from the beginnings of the cold war. Those Cutlass was Voughts entering a naval hunter competition of the 1.Juni 1945. The earlier Messerschmitt senior designer Waldemar Voigt brought its experiences in the tailless aircraft design from the projects ME P1110, ME P.1111 and ME P.1112. In the year 1946 the Navy ordered three prototypes. On 29 September 1948 the first machine completed its maiden flight. Vought received the construction contract for 14 F7U-1, which corresponded to the prototypes, as well as for the F7U-2 (because of engine problems never one built) and the F7U-3, which were built as final version in 180 copies. 98 machines of it were equipped as F7U-3M to the employment of AIM-7 Sparrow air air rockets. Few units used the type of 1954 till 1957. It suffered many problems, i.e. with the engines.
Similarities with some Arado drafts are remarkable, however the designers answered, there was no influence by German designs.(537)(538)
