Consolidated-Vultee Aircraft was formed in 1943 when Consolidated Aircraft was acquired by Vultee.  The new company name was often abbreviated Convair.

Convair is probably best known for its delta-wing aircraft (e.g. F-102, F-106, B-58) and its massive bomber, the B-36.

In 1952, the Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut purchased Convair and, merging it with Canadair, formed General Dynamics.  Convair kept its identity as a division of General Dynamics until 1961.
