Republic F-105D-31RE Thunderchief

Combat experience over North Vietnam brings to several modifications to the F-105Ds. The secondary hydraulic system originally was close to the primary system, which made it extremely vulnerable to enemy fire. A third hydraulic system was placed along the upper fuselage in a slightly enlarged dorsal spine. The AN/APR-25-26 RHAW (Radar Homing and Warning) antennas were added in a small box placed in the lower nose fairing. An additional antenna and pre-amps were placed to the vertical fin cap. A strike camera was installed in the nose for after-bombing analysis on targets. On the upper right corner of the pilot's panel a CRT display worked as indicator for the RHAW alert system.
