My only quibble is that anticipated range of the Arrow wasn't going to be all that great. I recall seeing a document once on the projected deployment of Arrow squadrons and many were supposed to be up north. Possibly great from a tactical point of view, maybe not so much from a recruiting/deployment perspective.I will disagree with you, the role did not disappear, it was supposedly to be taken over by Bomac (which was a real dog) and then we had to buy an interceptor and guess what the Americans were happy to sell us one. The Arrow was likley going to be a very good interceptor and likley would have followed a similar life as the Voodoo did, being eventually replaced by the CF-18. The effect it would have had on the Canadian aerospace industry would be interesting.
