“Thud”

Back to the National Air Force museum for the Vietnam Gallery.

Thud is the nickname of this SAM killer, the Republic F-105G Thunder Chief. The F-105G was modified for “Wild weasel” duty. The Wild Weasels were designed for taking out surface to air missle sites. There will be other Wild Weasels in the says to come.. 🙂
