The F-94 Starfire was a development of the F-80 Shooting Star.  To meet the interceptor role, a more powerful after-
burning engine was used and a second seat was added for a radar-intercept officer.  The prototype first flew on 16 April 1949.

The F-94C Starfire's firepower consisted of 24 2.75 inch Mighty Mouse air-to-air rockets housed around the nose radome and 12 each in a pods on each wing's leading edge.  The C model was the first USAF fighter to be armed exclusively with rockets.

The last F-94s were withdrawn from service in 1959.
