In the period following World War II, as the Cold War began to heat up, the U.S. Navy's requirement for a long-range attack aircraft, large enough to carry a nuclear weapon and capable of operating from the decks of aircraft carriers, resulted in the North American AJ-2 Savage. At that time, there appeared to be some merit in providing both piston engines and jet engines in a single airframe as an all-jet fleet was not yet a reality. It was the largest twin-engine Heavy Attack aircraft to ever operate from U.S. Navy carriers during the late 1940s and early 50s. The Savage was built as a nuclear attack bomber, but also served as a reconnaissance aircraft and refueling tanker. By the early 1960s, AJ Savages were replaced by the all-jet A-3 Skywarrior.Features
