The F-108 utilizes spoilers just in front of the aileron as well as elevator roll to achieve a higher roll rate. Its ailerons only go one direction to help the ailerons become flaps for a lower stall speed, but as a result the ailerons could only go down, and as a result the spoilers and elevons were implemented in the final design.
