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.
Wellington GR Mk XIV was an anti-submarine airplane carrying nose mounted ASV Mk III cent-metric radar and a Leigh Light. For the radar installation, the nose turret was removed, however, some machines had the outline of a turret painted on to disguise the fact that they were unarmed at the nose.
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.
