The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (affectionately known as the "Clunk" or "The Lead Sled" by Sabre pilots) was a Canadian jet interceptor/fighter which served during the early Cold War. The CF-100 was the first Canadian-designed fighter to enter mass production, serving primarily with the Royal Canadian Air Force and in small numbers in Belgium. For its day, the CF-100 featured a short takeoff run and high climb rate, over 15,000 feet per minute, making it well suited to its role as an interceptor.
