Republic XF91 Thunderceptor Rocket Fighter: Air Force Legends AFL #210 softcover by Ginter Books
When post-war budget cuts ended many combat aircraft programs, the overriding importance of one of the most promising of these, known as Secret Project Number MX-809 (MX meaning Material, Experimental) kept it alive.
The MX-809 project was created with hope of fielding a very high speed, high altitude daytime interceptor pursuit airplane capable of "meeting and defeating any strategic bomber aircraft that any potential adversary might produce." In other words, it was to be used for the sole purpose of defending U.S. airspace.
