The Convair F-102 Delta Dagger was developed from the XF-92 delta-wing research aircraft.  The U.S. Air Force requirement called for an interceptor that could intercept projected Russian intercontinental bombers.  The prototype first flew in 1953.

A two-seat side-by-side trainer, the TF-102 was built retaining full operational capability.  About 1,000 F-102 and TF-102 Delta Daggers were built.

An improved version, originally designated the F-102B, was developed as the F-106 Delta Dart.
