Republic F-105D Thunderchief

REPUBLIC F-l05D THUNDERCHIEFS are pictured with external fuel tanks carrying out a tactical mission. The all-weather tactical fighter-bomber is capable of Mach 2 speed (twice that of sound), can deliver a broad range of conventional and nuclear weapons, including guided and unguided missiles, and is equipped with the Vulcan 20-millimeter automatic cannon which fires 6,000 rounds a minute. The global- ranging Thunderchief can come in at tree-top level - no matter what the weather - in providing close air support for friendly ground forces.
