Why do people care so much about it? It's not like you're forced to read it, nor it pollutes the first page so badly.

Better than playing video games, still. At least he learns something and improves his writing capabilities.

Real world facts about the F-105 Thunderchief

Company: Republic
Powered by: 1 Pratt and whitney J75-P-19W afterburning turbojet engine
Speed: 2337 Km H
Range: 2975 km
Armament: One m61a1 vulcan cannon and 8 340 kg dumb bombs, or a maximum 6350 kg of ordnance.
Designation- F (Fighter)

     The republic F-105 thunderchief was a hero of the Vietnam War. One that got shot down. A lot. Also one tremendously loved by pilots, although courageous ones. It was actually an amazingly designed jet, with considerable AG firepower, but faced many threats, the most noticeable being Mig-17’s.

     The pilots who flew this jet had nerves of steel, and needed them. A typical mission of the pilots was to bomb the jungle canopy using cloud cover, or engaging targets in and around Hanoi. The Thunderchief was used for bombing and strafing. A total of nearly one-thirds of all Thunderchiefs were shot down in Vietnam. F-105 missions were so long that the pilots needed in-air refueling before they could continue on with their mission. These aircraft flew tremendously long, dangerous, and frequent missions. In Vietnam, you had to fly 100 F-105 sorties. Now, take into consideration everything north of South Vietnam was trying to kill you, 1/3 F-105’s were shot down, but at least the missions didn’t take too long. Oh wait. Lucky you. Since the F-105 could refuel in mid-air, your missions were quite long. One of the saddest facts is that a study proved that by the time you reached your 68th sortie, you were much overdue and would probably be shot down very soon.

     The F-105 engaged targets over and around Hanoi frequently. Although dumb bombs packed a punch, their lack of accuracy means that the bombs are usually only effective if you can score a direct or very close hit. When the F-105’s bombed the Doumer bridge, A.K.A. the Hanoi Railroad, they weren’t able to cause enough damage. They definitely did a good job, but F-4 Phantoms had to be called in to finish off the bridge with Laser-Guided bombs. Hilariously enough, an F-105 pilots had plenty of stories to tell. Near death experiences with little chance of survival make good conversation. Very good for picking up the ladies. One F-105 pilot saw another aircraft, and as many pilots can tell you, split second decisions save lives, and are required. Unfortunately, poor conditions mean that you can make mistakes. The pilot fired at a friendly aircraft. Normally, getting hit in the tailpipe or rear fuselage with an AIM-9 sidewinder is very bad. However, F-105’s had some serious armour. The other pilot returned to base. After exiting his aircraft, he looked at the back. This is probably what ensued (The historical accuracy stops after line one).
Pilot: What the hell? Theres a sidewinder in my tailpipe.
Pilot: Hey guys! Look what I survived. Its still hot!
Crowd: That’s what she said
Pilot: Wait a minute. The things still armed.
Other Pilot: Should we be doing something?
Pilot: Yes.
Other pilot: What?
Pilot: Run.

     After he and the airfield attendants spent the next ten minutes screaming OHMYGODAAAAAAAH and running in circles, it was removed and the pilot got one hell of a souvenir. I feel bad for the poor guy that had to remove it. This paragraph isn’t historically accurate.

     The jet commonly carried drop tanks, air-to-air missiles, and air-to-ground (AG) missiles. One awesome advantage the F-105 had was Thud Ridge. This was a large ridge that allowed the F-105’s to reach their targets safely, after which things went boom. The only word that really describes an F-105 is valiant.

     Sorry about the inaccuracy of the other articles, this one should be more accurate, I double checked it. However, when I refer to Sortie’s in Hanoi, I really mean sortie’s around Hanoi. I’m cross referencing and cross-checking my sources now, so I’ll post these facts guides less frequently (Finray and Seymoure, stop clapping) but they should be more accurate :D Should. Tell me if you notice any errors.

This is on the vietnam war variant, not the wild weasel or post Vietnam variant...
Yes, sheriff, I will find out more about Thud Ridge, then I'll put it on here.
I'll make a heli facts guide soon too
Dammit how do I add pictures?

The one source I avoid like a plague for research is wikipedia. Plagiarism=bad.
Real world fact right there. ^ :D
However, if you are so anxious for wikipedia...
www.wikipedia.com :D
There you go!

I would if it wouldn't probably get me a perm.

Also the title wouldn't fit on the line.

this is true.

actually, @OP if you'd been posting this maybe 3 years back, it would probably fit right in (when the BF2 section was very active etc). how we're all bitter about general things it comes across too fresh-faced.

and to conclude i should stop being horrible to new people* (but please calm down with the guides). post non-guidey stuff for a bit.

*androo doesn't count, he's not new, and he needs to get run over.

tl;dr, sorry and less guides more other stuff
