Super -Tiger vs Sud Aviation Trident 9050

I tbe mid 1950's the engine technology was not so developed in Europe as it was in US.
Therefore tests were carrid with mixed power of jets and rocket in the same plane.The Trident was such a plane with rocket engine for top perfornance and two small engines for take off and landings.
The drawback of this method was the short range of the system but when it worked the plane had unpresdented performance.
At the same time the US had a turbo jet named J79 which was far better than anything Europe had the time so the Super tiger didn't need anything eles !
Both planes comepeted in the contract that the F-104 wone for Germany Nederland and Italy - by the biggest bribing in militry Aviation history.

Great job in another strange bird for me, he didn't know it either. It's amazing what you learn here apart from modeling.

Super -Tiger and Miarge competed on the big contract in the late 50's but as we all know the Starfighter "won" and the rest was a very bad history.
Some images of the two with the Mirage from mali in IAF scheme.

Super- Tiger what if ?

In the late 1950's there was a fierce competition between several aircraft types on a contract for more than 1000!!! mach 2.0 fighters for German airforce Italy and Nederland. The types that participated were
Mirage III and Trident from France , F-104 and Super-Tiger from USA .
The F-104 won despite being not popular with US airforce , it was found that Lockheed bribed very high ranking germans in ordwr to win the deal. Main issues with the F-104 was the need for very long runways , poor turn rate due to very small wings , ejection seat that eject downwards.
In the service with the German airforce 116 pilots died and 300 crashed and the name widow maker came very fast.
In fact every other plane bar the Trident was much better. The Super -Tiger had the same engine J79 and if we see the Tiger blue angels safety recored of 12 years we can conclued a much better safety record.
Grumman even conducted a special program to show the Super -tiger to carry bombs and missiles of different types.
The plane had a much better flight envelope than the F-104.
We can only asume that had the Super Tiger won it could do with much less lose of Pilots life.
