The Navy had avoided implementing a swept-wing fighter, worried that it wouldn’t perform well at lower speeds. But when lightning fast MiG-15 appeared in the skies over North Korea in 1950, the U.S. quickly realized it needed a faster fighter, and that meant swept wings. The Grumman F9F Cougar was the swept wing version of the F9F Panther. It entered the war too late, though, and never saw combat. But it became a valuable trainer.
