This was not the only VTOL jet from Ryan. They also produced the X-13 delta-wing tailsitter. To be more precisely it was a tailhanger since it did not sit on its tail like the turboprop powered XV-1 and XFY-1. Instead it was recuperated using a special vertical platform that could be raised down once the plane was coupled and secured.

Sorry, spelling mistake! Of course it was the X-13!
