The SR 177 was developed from the SR 53 and intended for production. The RAF, RN and sevther air forces were interested. It would have been a very effective aircrfat because of the combination or jet and rocket power. It would have been agile with long range and endurance and teh rocket would have given great aceeleration and a ceiling above other aircraft.
However Lockheed developed the Starfighter and became the fighter of choice. With a shortage of orders the project was cancelled.
