My vote - in the "Production Military Jet" category is for the Supermarine Scimitar. Everything that I read about it points to it being a real pig to maintain and fly.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends...

yeah the V-22 is up there. what about the Hun? or maybe the F-111? according to John Boyd's Energy-Maneuvering theory, the F-111 was not superior to the MiG in almost every aspect.

I reckon the boulton paul defiant it had the same engine as a hurricane but was larger and heavier it had a shorter wingspan so less manouverable it was slower but the main reason it was a fighter but instead of having the common 6 or 8 brownings in the wings it had a rotating turret which if it was pointing forwards cut out it wasnt even succesful as a night fighter when all it had to go against was bombers pathetic plane

Lightning, my pilot, sits;
