Galeria de fotos de um Convair B-58A Hustler, The Convair B-58 Hustler was the first operational supersonic jet bomber capable of Mach 2 flight. The aircraft was designed by Convair engineer Robert H. Widmer and developed for the United States Air Force for service in the Strategic Air Command (SAC) during the 1960s. It used a delta wing, which was also employed by Convair fighters such as the F-102, with four General Electric J79 engines in pods under the wing. It carried five nuclear weapons; four on pylons under the wings, and one nuclear weapon and fuel in a combination bomb/fuel pod under the fuselage, rather than in an internal bomb bay.

Mais informações:

O Convair B-58A Hustler was a supersonic bomber aircraft that served in the United States Air Force from 1960 to 1970. It was the first operational bomber capable of Mach 2 flight, and had a distinctive delta wing design. The B-58A carried a nuclear weapon in a pod under the fuselage, and could also carry additional fuel tanks or conventional bombs. The B-58A had a crew of three: a pilot, a navigator-bombardier, and a defensive systems operator.
O B-58A was designed for high-altitude penetration missions, but faced several challenges in its operational use. It had a high maintenance cost, a limited range, and a low survivability in the face of new Soviet air defenses. The B-58A was retired in 1970, and replaced by the more versatile B-52 Stratofortress and the FB-111A Aardvark.
