Just had a proper look at this and noticed the very high score of the Scimitar - 423, in comparison to the 220/260 of the comparable F3H, and giving an F8U a run for its' money. Given how every account of the Scimitar reports on its' high crash rate and other shortcomings, this seems odd.

Very powerful gun pack and high rate of climb, I suspect - from memory the model isn't likely to deal with leaky fuel tanks and nasty landing characteristics well. It does beg the question of how well the projected 2-seat Scimitar would have done instead of the Sea Vixen, however...

I've noticed the absence of the Corsair II. Given it had clipped wings to fit the RN carrier lifts and thus a corresponding faster roll rate, the difference with the bog-standard F4U-1A would be interesting.

Scimitar FAW?
With the same radar/missile system but reheated Avons.
I suspect a lot better.

I was thinking of the Type 556 - AI.18 radar, two Red Dean or four Blue Jay, two guns and a pair of reheated Avons. Claimed rate of climb 43,600 fpm, 766 mph at sea level, 690 mph at altitude and a 52,000 ft service ceiling.

I was talking of XH451 ordered on 23 Sept 1954, Vickers Supermarine Type 556 to NR/A.38 so yes we're talking the same beast.
Twin reheatet Avon RA.24Rs
Two 30mm ADEN
29" dish AI18.B (with D combined 'computer') for Firestreak and Red Dean.
Twin seats.

Frankly pump in the cashflow for the improved AI.18 with MTI circuits and I'd say this wipes the floor with Sea Vixen and AI.18R (Red Top computer).
