The Republic F-105 Thunderchief, first flown in 1955 and often known as “Thud” by its pilots, was a rugged and reliable multi-role fighter with an emphasis on low altitude, high-speed penetration strikes with a single nuclear bomb. At the time of its construction it was the largest fighter in the world and set several world speed records. The F-105D was the definitive variation, featuring an all-weather capability and modern avionics (for the time) with 610 units of this type being built.
