Overview

コンベア F-102 デルタダガーは迎撃機として設計され、1950年代末にアメリカ空軍防空の要として運用されました。 F-102 はソ連爆撃機の迎撃を主任務として1956年に登場しました。 正式名称は「デルタダガー」でしたが、一般的には「デュース」で通っていました。 1958年9月、F-102A の生産は 889機をもって終了しました。

The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was designed to be an interceptor aircraft and act as the core of USAF air defenses in the late 1950s. The F-102 first appeared in service in 1956 with the task to intercept Soviet bombers. The official name for the F-102 was “Delta Dagger” but the most common term used was “Deuce”. There was 889 F-102As manufactured when production ended in September 1958.

Deuce in Vietnam War

1962年3月21日、プロジェクト・ウォーターグラスの下、F-102 はベトナムへ初展開、その後のプロジェクト・キャンディマシーン中でも使用され続けました。 1962年3月、第509迎撃飛行隊の F-102 は暫定任務として、ダ・ナン、南ベトナム(当時)、ドンムアン(タイ)、サイゴン近郊のタン・ソン・ナット航空基地へ派遣されました。 1968年、ダナンは1日に2600件もの航空交通管制を行う世界で最も過密な空港の一つでした。 1969年12月、F-102はベトナムから撤収、その間対空火器、ベトコンによる地上攻撃、小火器や運用上の事故により15機が失われました。

On March 21, 1962 under Project “Water Glass” the first operational deployment to Vietnam of F-102's took place and remained there under Project “Candy Machine”. In March of 1962 F-102’s of the 509th FIS were sent on Temporary Duty (TDY) to Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon as well as from Da Nang, South Vietnam (at the time) and Don Muang (Thailand). In 1968 Da Nang was the busiest airport in the world with just under 2,600 daily air traffic operations. The Deuces (F-102) were used as interceptors, some escort duty, and even ground attack. In December of 1969 the F-102’s were withdrawn from Vietnam and at that time had lost 15 aircraft to AAA, destroyed on the ground by the Viet Cong, small arms fire and operational accidents.
