Blast from the past. NR-349 Interceptor.
The biggest plane to operate from a carrier...I believe...was the A5 Vigilante (meaning being deployed as a part of the ship's air wing). Little is known and even less is written about a proposal to add a third J79 engine to the A5 and transform it into a powerful interceptor carrying 6 AIM-154 missiles.
