Design and development

The N-102 Fang was powered by one General Electric J79 turbojet engine, though the designers believed two engines would increase the reliability and safety margin.[2][3] The pilot would have a largely unobstructed canopy because of the downward angle of the nose. The design also included swept-back wings and a tricycle landing gear. The design never entered production because the United States Air Force instead opted for the F-104 Starfighter design by Lockheed Martin.[3] However, it did loosely form the basis of the F-5 fighter family.[4]

The design was the subject of a 1957 design patent.[5]
