The CF-100 Canuck

The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck was a Canadian fighter jet employed between 1952 and 1981. This was the only game designed in Canada to be mass-produced .

The CF-100 is not considered supersonic. Therefore could not exceed the speed of sound in level flight.

692 aircraft were produced in different variants, and 53 units were exported to Belgium. His successor, CF-105 Arrow, also designed in Canada, was canceled in 1959 by a controversial decision by the government, the CF-100 isn't under operation, however he still can be seen in Canadian museums.
