Change Vought entered the V-371 Interceptor in the competition for the MX1554 requirement for the USAF which ultimately led to the F-102 being fielded. The V-371 was projected to have a top speed of 1,221 mph at 35,000 ft. In Tony Buttler's new book Early US Jet Fighters Proposals, Projects and Prototypes covers the MX1554 requirement and the contending designs on pages 152-163.
