855 F-94s were built, the unit cost of the F-94C was $534,073 USD.  This model was significantly different from earlier versions of the F-94 and was originally designated the F-97.  This model carried rockets in both the nose pod and in wing pods.  However, rockets fired from the nose pod could cause engine flameout in the F-94 and their smoke could temporarily obscure the vision of the pilot.
