Default F-105 Thunderchief

Can't believe you guys didn't pick up on this:

Oh man...I've LONGED for an F105D. That brings my dream of DCS Vietnam closer to reality, what with the Mig 19 in development, and community-built A4s/F-100s.

Definite Day 1 pre-order if it ever came to be.

Did the G retain the capability of using bombs/rockets etc like the regular 105?

technically it can according to SAC sheets, (then again so can An F-15 A and C carry bombs if you go by SAC)

http://www.avialogs.com/index.php/en...mber-1972.html

but in actual reality it practically only ever carried Shrikes and AGm78s, Hence why id still rather like to have the F105D. OF the two the D was the most mass produced version and was the most defining and iconic variation of the Thud. That variation was the workhorse Strike aircraft of the Aerial war over north Vietnam. Plus second seat of the G alone will make it harder to develop and for the team to worry about backseat Ai.

Then again on the other hand the F-105D doesn't have any SEAD missiles at all ( at least according to SAC)

Yeah by the looks of it there is just more options, no capabilities were removed compared to the F or D. Though I guess you're still dealing with the extra weight.

D model used Shrike missiles in Vietnam, there is plenty of photo and video evidence.

My most wanted model would probably be an F-model (either with or without special modifications) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republ..._modifications

F-105 F had all bombs and rockets while maintaining the SEAD capability, dual controls, and some special field-units (mentioned in the link above) had better radars with better resolution for super dangerous missions. If I remember correctly, two F-105 crews received the medal of Honor in F-105Fs
