Republic Aviation Thunderstreak FGA.1

Recommended Posts

Republic Aviation FGA.1 - No.20 Squadron, Royal Air Force Middle East Command, 1956

The delay in both the Hawker Hunter and Supermarine Swift programmes saw an ailing RAF adopt the swept-wing F-84F Thunderstreak in several versions starting with the Sapphire powered Thunderstreak FGA.1 which served in Middle East Command from 1955, although with marginal thrust it was not really suited to the hot and dry conditions and were tied to runways of at least 7,000 foot length. Equipped with the ASSa.6 version of the Sapphire (rated at 8,300lbs thrust) the Thunderstreak also featured uprated outer wing weapon stations to carry standard 1,000lb bombs.





Featuring a lovely Desert Camo skin by 'whiteknight06604'.
