The Republic F-84F Thunder streak was an American-built swept-wing turbojet fighter-bomber. While an evolutionary development of the straight-wing F-84 Thunderjet, the F-84F was a new design. as a competitor to North American Aviation’s F-86 “Sabre”. The “F” model differs from the “C” model in that its wings are swept back 40 degrees; its tail and elevator are swept back and it has a smaller canopy and redesigned windscreen. First flown in November of 1952, it was built too late for the “F” model to see combat in Korea. Some “Thunderstreaks” did see combat while serving with England and France in the 1956 “Suez Crisis”.
