P-80/F-80 Shooting Star

The first jet fighter used operationally in the USAAF. It was introduced in 1945 and saw extensive service in Korea. Due to testing incidents it was not fielded in WWII. It saw the first jet-to-jet combat when an F-80C shot down a MiG-15. Although inferior in performance to the F-86 Sabre, the Shooting Star continued to serve as recon by the war's closing. Of the 277 F-80s lost in operations (about 30% of the existing inventory), 113 were destroyed by ground fire and 14 shot down by enemy aircraft. A longer-fuselage model, the T-33, was produced until 1959 as a trainer. The Shooting Star was armed with 2 1,000lb bombs or 8 unguided rockets, and 6 12.7mm M2 Browning machine guns, and fitted with wingtip-mounted fuel tanks.




F-84F Thunderstreak
Not to be confused with the F-84 Thunderjet, which had a straight wing, the F-84F had a swept wing and improved design structure. It was introduced in 1954 as a replacement for the F-84 Thunderjet under terms that it would be low-cost, and as such was made to use most of the same parts. It arrived too late for Korea but was a mainstay for the USAF during the rising tensions between East and West as the Berlin Wall was constructed. It was retired from Air Force service in 1964 and from air National Guard service in 1971. Its armament was six M2 Browning MGs and up to 6,000lbs of bombs, including one nuclear bomb.

@Zengar: You're right, I'll post those here as I make them. They will each be featured in one way or another(example: F-105 in 'Nam).

I guess you could say these prelude to them. Smile

Probably not, but then again I did make the F-108 Rapier, so we'll see. That reminds me to redo the master unit inclusion list.

F-108 Rapier renormalized.


Here's the previous version.


F-102 Delta Dagger. Quick voxel, gonna redo the line details later, and change up the scheme.


Also made the B-58 Hustler today but it's obviously not a fighter, thus not gonna be in this thread. Razz

With the F-108, I'm guessing a (X)B-70 too?

Yup. Once the century fighters are done I'll probable make that one next, then I'll get back to making the Soviet jets (MiG-17 first no doubt, that one's been a long time coming).
See the master unit list thread for all the unit pics so far.

Experimental F-107 ready to roll. In missions predating the F-105's arrival into service, you'll get the F-107A in your arsenal.

Next up is the F-100 Super Sabre. Originally designed to replace the F-86 Sabre and used from 1954 until its retirement from the Air National Guard in 1971. Saw service in several wars including Vietnam.

Note: I'm addressing that super-shininess in those two facings now.

Next up: the F-106 Delta Dart. Introduced into service in 1959 and phased out in the late 1980s, it was the last designated interceptor-role aircraft of the USAF. Carries 4 AIM-4 Falcon anti-air missiles and has a max speed of mach 2.3.
