In May 1947, the U.S. War Department issued a requirement to the industries for a new jet-powered supersonic bomber that would be ready for service by the late 1950s. A number of contractors submitted bids. The USAF chose Convair XB-58 and Boeing XB-59 to proceed with a Phase-I study. The basic XB-59 was to be powered by four turbojet engines. The design called for four jets to be mounted inside the inboard wing -- two on each side. The landing gear was similar to the tandem main landing gear with wingtip outrigger design used on both the B-47 and B-52. The XB-59 contract was canceled in late 1952 after the USAF declared the Convair XB-58 the winner in the design competition. Neither the XB-58 or XB-59 was anywhere near the prototype construction phase, and the cancellation of the Boeing project was due in part to the expense of funding development of both projects through prototype flight testing and the growing belief by USAF senior staff officers that high-speed, high-altitude penetration was not going to be a viable offensive strategy during the projected initial operational capability in the early 1960s
