Description

A superb 1:48 scale model of the F-105G, originally developed in 1955 by Republic in the USA. Built to meet the need for a heavy fighter-bomber, the F-105 Thunderchief was capable of carrying a heavy bomb load at low altitudes with a top speed of Mach 2.15 and a range of around 3,330 km.  A two seater version - the F-105F – was introduced, and during the Vietnam War this aircraft was further adapted to interdict North Vietnamese missile sites and their guidance radars.  Electronics to detect and attack SAM sites were installed in a programme called "Wild Weasel". Equipped with these state of the art electronics, carried mostly on outboard stations under the wing, the F-105F was designated EF-105F and was armed with the AGM-45 Shrike missile  hat guided itself to target  by riding the enemy radar beam.

  • One AGM-78 "HARM" guided missile.
