Sweet pic. What type of aircraft is that? Is that a navalized Gripen? J10?

Nope, the Convair 201, it was a proposed fighter but never got past the prototype stage.

Interesting. Was it competing with the Hornet? After the Delta Darts, seems like the Navy would not have been a fan of the Delta wing design, even if the Canards would have helped low speed performance.

To be honest with you I'm not too sure on the history of the Convair 201 myself, some history may be found here:

I'm afraid that's all I know about it.

That's cool. I never even heard of the jet until you posted the pic. Interesting design though.

It is, but far lacking and while it's fun to fly and a good light bomber, it'll never outdo a legacy Hornet.
