"The YB-36G was designed as an all-jet version of the B-36. Eight Pratt & Whitney
XJ57-P-3 turbojet engines were mounted in four nacelles in an arrangement very similar
to the Boeing B-52. The USAF authorized Convair to modify two B-36Fs (S/N 49-2676
& 49-2684) in early 1951. Although the -G was similar to the basic B-36,
there was substantial reengineering done including a completely new 37
swept wing. The design was eventually redesignated YB-60 to reflect these
differences. The first flight was 18 April 1952 and performance was better
than the B-36, but was greatly inferior to the Boeing XB-52. The YB-60 never
entered production. The second prototype aircraft was never completely finished and both YB-60s
were scrapped in the mid-1950s."
