F-105 evolved from a project that begun in 51 by Republic Aviation at Farmingdale NY. They tried to design a supersonic tactical fighter-bomber to take the place of the F-84F. The massive F-105 was intended primarily for nuclear strike missions. Prototype first flew on October 22, 1955.
F-100 was the USAF first supersonic fighter. It made its first flight on May 25, 1953, and the initial production aircraft was completed in later October 1953. Super Sabre became the first fighter flying at supersonic speed, completing that task in Oct. 29, 1953.
Shenyang J-8II “Finback”-B, features a redesigned forward fuselage that utilize a pair of lateral inlets and a solid nose to reform the original nose inlet design on the J-8. The solid nose provides enough space to accommodate a larger fire-control radar antenna for better target acquisition and tracking performance.
