For a piston engine aircraft, the Spads could deliver a world of hurt
just about anywhere it was needed.

Bomb load of a B-17 PLUS 4 cannon...

Consider this...the F-106 was only 4 inches shorter than a B-17...designed for a
different kind of mission but still...only 20 years or so apart, the change in
military aviation was huge.
