First published in 1984, the FJ-2 Fury, sometimes called the navalized F-86 was first proposed in January 1951. In fact the 3rd XFJ-2 was a F-86E with 4-20mm cannons instead of the Air Forces 6-.50 cal. machine guns. All other FJ-2s were completed with lengthened landing gear and a V-style tailhook. All production aircraft had folding wings and 4-20mm guns. The entire FJ-2 production was assigned to the Marines which equipped six front line fighter squadrons with it. These were VMF-122, VMF-232, VMF-235, VMF-312, VMF-334 and VMF-451. The book contains short histories of each of these squadrons as well as a first hand account of its flight testing. 85 b&w photos as well as 22 illustrations are included.
