Quote from: AS.12 on March 31, 2018, 02:48:35 AMSidewinder deployed from July 1956 onwards initially with VA-46 ( F9F-8 Cougar, USS Randolph ) and VF-211 ( FJ-3 Fury, USS Bon Homme Richard ) Per Flight archive ( 6 August 1964 ) the SNEB was also available from 1956. There was grumbling about the RAF taking so long to adopt them for the CAS role ( Hunter FGA.9 in 1964, in place of the old and rather-useless-by-then 3in RPs ).Also of interest is that the Skyray failed its initial carrier qualification trials in 1955. I'm trying to find out what changes were made to permit it to pass in 1956..
