The Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation, universally known as Convair, was the result of a 1943 merger between Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft, resulting in a leading aircraft manufacturer of the United States.

Convair B-58 Hustler - USA (4254 words)
Convair had already proposed in January, 1950, a small delta wing composite carrying 2 men, which would be transported into the target zone by a B-36.
The Convair MX-1626 proposal was for a small delta wing bomber to be carried as a parasite under a turboprop powered B-60, the swept-back variation of the B-36.
Convair thus received a full scale Phase I development contract under the Weapon System concept, using the MX-1964 design as a basis, with the further instruction that the aircraft would be known as the B-58.
When General Dynamics purchased 17 percent of Convair's stock, Convair's was three times the size of General Dynamics (1670 words)
The primary mission of the Convair F-102A Delta Dagger was to intercept and destroy enemy aircraft.
For the Atlas, Convair developed a new kind of airframe, nicknamed the "gas bag." Made of stainless steel sections that were thinner than paper, it achieved rigidity through helium pressurization, similar to the way a football keeps its shape.
The Convair Division continued, however, to be involved with space and delivered the first Space Shuttle Orbiter mid-section fuselage to North American Rockwell, producer of the Orbiter, in 1975.
