The F-89D/J Scorpion was the first two-seat all weather interceptor in the USAF and the most heavily armed fighter aircraft of all time. In 1950 some of the F89D series underwent extensive modification. A combined fuel-pod/missile launcher mounted on the wing-tips could hold 1165 litre s of fuel and carry 52 FFAR Rockets. The next large series was the F-89J. It could carry 4 Falcon Guided Missiles with Infra-Red Homing Heads as well as 2 Genie Guided Missiles each with a 1.5 kiloton nuclear warhead for use against enemy bomber formations.
