CONVAIR B-58 HUSTLER
Probably the most exciting plane the Air Force now possesses is the B-58 Hustler.This delta-winged medium bomber, a third the size of the B-52, is capable of1,000-mile-plus speeds. Four General Electric jets, with afterburners, producesome 16,000 pounds thrust each. The interchangeable pod under the fuselagecarries the proper amount of fuel, bombs, cameras, or missiles, depending on themission. To get where it wants to go and launch its weapons at such speeds, theHustlers one-ton computer system processes data from several radar and star-tracking systems. The navigator-bombardier operates the computer, the pilot fliesthe plane, and the third crewman handles the defensive radar (electronic gadgetsto confuse enemy radar and missiles) and a radar-fired tail gun. All this is instartling contrast to Americas first bomber, the Martin MB-2 of 1918, which |carried its one ton of TNT at less than 100 miles per hour.
