F-105 Thunderchief images Geli 1:48

Some photos of the Geli 105. The model is reduced to 1:48 which is my standard scale. The fuselage looks like a giant bullet
and the wings are short - somthing that is good for stability at low level were the 105 was one of the fastest fighters !!!

Dear Sergio - if you will see in You tube the story of the f-105 You will
realize that the problem was not the plane but the tactic that the AMERICAN
used with it - they send the F-105 to bomb useless targets against the most
dense anti aircraft fire that was networked with Radar from 23 to 100 mm not to remind the 100 SAM 2 BATTERIES !!!
Just to remind the Phantom loses in Vietnam including USAF NAVY and MARINES were over 600 !!!

F-4 Phantom vs F-105 Thunderchief

The two were the main work horses over NV while the F-100 Hun was doing the same job over SV .
A comparetion between the two :
F-105 19.2m length span - 10.65
weight - max 25 ton max load - 6 ton
F-4 19.2 m length span 11.8 weight - max 26 ton max load 7 ton
Engines F-105 J75 12.5 ton with water injection take off
F-4 two J79 - 15 ton combind
Speed F-105 - low 1.2 mach 2.25 high
Speed F-4 -low 1.2 mach 2.4 mach high 1.8 mach with Tiseo.
Rate of climb - around 35k both.
Range is similar around 3500 km with max fuel.
Wing load is better for Phantom and better turn and climb rate.
The f-105 D was one of the fastest low level the fighters and with full AB was supersonic after bomb release on the deck !!!
The Phantom had a better radar and radar guided missiles that the Thud didn't had.
So the Phantom was a better interceptor
The F-105 D was the better bomber..

While the two are similar in length it is clear that the Phantom has a bigger wing area and a better turn rate than the smaller Thud wing !
The small Thud wing give the Thud more stability and very high speed at low level flight !!!

Vietnam Trio work - horses

The 3 main fighters of Vietnam :
The F-100 Super Sabre or Hun for the 100 series was the main bomber on the south serving as an air artillery where needed.
The F-105 was the main bomber in the north doibg over 75% of the strikes against the most heavily defended targets in the world.
The F-4 Phantom was used as multi role fighter both in the south and north - mainly interceptor but also as a bomber used by USAF MARINES and NAVY.
