Here is a look a look at the top 5 fighter designs that should have gone into production – and the reasons why they didn’t.
During the long course of its existence, development of fighter planes has provided examples of many dead ends and designs that just didn’t work out. By their very nature Fighter aircraft are super competitive, and as soon as one is developed adversaries work out ways to defeat it with both anti air defenses and newer fighters that can counter the latest design. It’s a never ending game of cat and mouse.
However just like there have been many dead ends, there are also cases when a design should have gone into production but did not.
