These had followed, and would continue to follow, more or less common lines. Successive variants of the se fighter s employed more powerful (and therefore heavier ) engines to boost their maximum speed and climbing performance. They carried more powerful (and therefore heavier) armaments. They carried larger (and therefore heavier ) fuel loads to pr ovide the increa ses in range that operational pilot s demanded.
