The Supermarine Scimitar F.1 was a British naval fighter aircraft that served with the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm from 1957 to 1969. It was the first jet fighter in the world to have a swept wing and a tailless design, and the last fighter produced by Supermarine. The Scimitar F.1 was designed to operate from the aircraft carriers of the Royal Navy, and was capable of performing both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. It was armed with four 30 mm ADEN cannons and could carry a variety of rockets, bombs and nuclear weapons. The Scimitar F.1 was also equipped with a radar, an ejection seat and a refueling probe.
The Scimitar F.1 entered service in 1957, replacing the Hawker Sea Hawk and the Supermarine Attacker. It was initially used for fleet defense and strike missions, but later also performed reconnaissance and tanker roles. The Scimitar F.1 saw action during the Suez Crisis in 1956, the Indonesian Confrontation in 1963-1966 and the Aden Emergency in 1967. It also participated in several exercises and deployments around the world, including the Mediterranean, the Far East and the Atlantic. The Scimitar F.1 was retired from service in 1969, being replaced by the Blackburn Buccaneer and the McDonnell Douglas Phantom II. A total of 76 Scimitar F.1s were built, of which only one survives today as a museum exhibit.
