This is exactly the same aircraft Aerodyne 124 but dressed in U.S. Navy Service in late 50's.
Not as polemic nor politically incorrect than his German version, but less naturally designed in the U.S. One can assume, instead, that it was created in early fifties by a team of German engineers working in U.S. aircraft industry after Operations "Paperclip" and "Overcast" after the war, a fact that really did occur and that was highly crucial in understand the rapid technological developments that led, in a pair of decades, from biplanes to walk on the Moon.
This cannon-armed aircraft was created to be deployed in Navy ships of less displacement than big aircraft carriers, or in converted cruisers or hybrid ships.
I have special attraction to the then curious formula of hybrid carrier, led to the limit by Japanese Navy battleship class Ise. Today, in order to preserve scarce funds, navies tend to create hybrids in the form of "assault" ships with wet docks inside and flight deck an hangars to support air components; these ships, like the misnamed "Juan Carlos I" of Spanish Navy, can also be used as VTOL aircraft carrier in support of the fleet.
