F-105 Thunderchief: Workhorse of the Vietnam War
The eye-opening insider's look at the first aircraft developed for small nuclear weapons delivery--with technical facts, never-before-seen photos, and first-person accounts. Chronicles the bomber's evolution, starting with its initial purpose of meeting the demand for small thermonuclear weaponry capable of penetrating Soviet defenses. Covers the F-105's many phototypes, its pivotal role in Vietnam (where it flew over 75% of missions and earned its nickname "Thud" due to its staggering crash rate), and its modified capability of hunting surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).
