The F-100 Super Sabre may have been superseded by the superior technology of the F-105 Thunderchief and the F-4 Phantom by the Vietnam War it remained in service. The Super Sabre was deployed as an air defence fighter, and was later given nuclear capability. 242 Super Sabres and 87 aircrew were lost during the war but their role, particularly in developing the tactics used for discovering and destroying SAM sites, was invaluable. This book describes some of the most important actions that the F-100 took part in, looks at the pilots who flew it and analyses the impact of the aircraft on the war. Read on the Scribd mobile app.

While the F-105 Thunderchief and F-4 Phantom flew the majority of the fighter-bomber missions over North Vietnam, the Thunderchief's service predecessor, the F-100 Super Sabre stayed on to fight the air war in South Vietnam until June 1971. Other F-100Fs replaced fragile piston-engined forward air control (FAC) aircraft, providing more survivable high-speed airborne management of strike missions. Maj George Day, awarded the Medal of Honor in 1973, was the first leader of this 'Misty FAC' unit. F-100D pilot Lt Hayden Lockhart becomes the first USAF prisoner of war in Hanoi. The Super Sabre was deployed as an air defence fighter, and was later given nuclear capabili. Biographical Note. Attacks on the Than Hoa and Ham Rong Bridges involve five flights of F-100s and a probable MiG kill for Capt Kilgus.

Osprey's examination of the F-100 Super Sabre Units' participation in the Vietnam War (1955-1975). While the F-105 Thunderchief and F-4 Phantom flew the majority of the fighter-bomber missions over North Vietnam, the Thunderchief's service predecessor, the F-100 Super Sabre stayed on to fight the air war in South Vietnam until June 1971. Although it was designed as an air defence fighter, and was later given nuclear capability as the mainstay of Tactical Air Command's deterrent posture, it was the F-100's toughness, adaptability and reliability that made it ideally suited to the incessant 'taxi-rank' close support and counter-insurgency missions in Vietnam. The jet's four 20 mm cannon and external loads of bombs, rockets and fire-bombs defeated many enemy incursions, with US troops in contact expressing a preference for the accuracy and skill of F-100 pilots to save them in situations where ordnance had to be dropped very close to their own lines. Many courageous deeds were performed, although 242 F-100s and 87aircrew were lost in action. Used at the start of Operation Rolling Thunder in March 1965 as an escort for F-105 strikes, the Super Sabre fought MiGs and one pilot made a credible claim for a MiG-17 destroyed, but the more capable F-4 Phantom II soon replaced it in this role. The air-to-ground war was fought by F-100C/D/F pilots from 21 TAC and Air National Guard squadrons at six bases in South Vietnam and Thailand. From September 1965, a number of two-seat F-100Fs were equipped to detect and pinpoint SA-2 missile sites, and they led F-105s in to destroy them in hazardous missions that founded the suppression of enemy air defences (SEAD) techniques developed for F-105F and F-4C 'Wild Weasel' aircraft later in the war. Other F-100Fs replaced fragile piston-engined forward air control (FAC) aircraft, providing more survivable high-speed airborne management of strike missions. Maj George Day, awarded the Medal of Honor in 1973, was the first leader of this 'Misty FAC' unit. The aircraft's strengths and eccentricities will be examined through analysis of its performance and the anecdotes of those who flew and serviced it.
Reviews about F-100 Super Sabre Units of the Vietnam War (Combat Aircraft) (7):
Friert
Great book to have, besides my Dad was Crew Chief on these at Nellis A.F.B. back in the days. Then inspected them for Quality Control w/the 35 T.F.W. at Phan Rang AB in S. Vietnam. All the squadrons are here, and a lot of Great color pictures too. You will Like it too.

I never really knew anything about this aircraft. I think they are often overshadowed by more famous plane's such as the F-4. It was amazing how long it spent in Vietnam. Peter Davies' style is better than some of the others in the series; more operational information and not just about the losses. Good chapter on how the F-100 started the Wild Weasel program. Look forward to reading more from this author.

An incredible amount of detail on the operational history of the Hun in Vietnam. Covered are early missions as a fighter, through the change over to the attack roll, then into the final days as the first Wild Weasels and the Misty FACs. The stories highlight the strengths and weaknesses of this great plane, which was overshadowed by the F-4 Phantom, and brings out the importance of it's role in the conflict. Well detailed, the only issue I had with the book is the tendancy to jump around in time when citing specific incidents. Apart from that, an excellent read and source of valuable information.

This book is a concise account of the F-100s in Vietnam. The authors first describe the birth of F-100 in Chapter One "Development". I must say that this chapter is lovingly written! As the common trait of all the chapters, it is concise yet full of information with very good photographs. The Chapter Two "Warhorse" and Chapter Three "The Mission" narrates the F-100 operations in Vietnam: both of the chapters are full of informative pilot anecdotes. The missions, tactics and weapons are nicely explained. The pilots honestly lists the Hun's drawbacks along with its strong features. My slight criticism of the chapters is that they basically describe the F-100D operations: F-100C operations are a bit sidelined. In fact, there are very few F-100C photographs. The same holds for the 27 high quality color profiles: 20 x F-100D, 5 x F-100D and 2 x F-100C. Chapter Four "Wild Weasels" and Chapter Five "Misty FAC" are dedicated to F-100F. The chapters are a tribute to the F-100F crews! Before reading the book, I knew that the Wild Weasel missions were very dangerous and the officers behind the effort did an excellent job. However, I didn't know that the "Misty" missions were no less dangerous: Major George 'Bud' Day did an excellent job, too! Their courage, dedication and professionalism are striking: I salute them with great respect. The book describes the life in the F-100 bases a bit: certainly the ground crews worked very hard, sometimes under direct attack! The book contains a lot of Vietnam era photographs. The interesting ones: p22 F-100D 55-2894 of Captain Don Kilgus, p51 F-100D 55-2924 which returned with large items of foliage after its pilot misjudged his altitude during an attack, p54 F-100D 56-3379 hiding its nose art from the officialdom in a novel way, p66 F-100D 56-3392 showing its heavily damaged nose. The cover art is striking: it depicts Captain Don Kilgus attacking a MiG-17 with 20 mm cannon bursts on 4 April 1965 in F-100D 55-2894. In short, I strongly recommend this fantastic book to any fan of F-100 without hesitation!

I was Targets Officer for the 3rd TFW prior to the deployment of its squadrons to Bien Hoa, TSN, etc. I am familiar with the airplane, the mission, and many of the pilots, both from England AFB and Misawa AB, from which the 416th and 531st TFS and much of the 90th TFS came originally. This is a compact, but splendid, history. Many excellent photos. Much nostalgia for me. The first reviewer has said it all well. If you are interested in any aspect - F-100s, the pilots, the VN mission - don't pass this one up.

The F-100 Super Sabre, the next generation to the famous F-86 Sabre Jet of Korean War fame, also built by North American Aviation, made its own history as the premiere fighter-bomber in the Air War over South Vietnam. It became famous as the USAF aircraft that flew many sorties to assist American and other allied troops that were in contact with the elusive Communist enemy troops. Nicknamed, " The Hun" by its crews and ground crews, the single-seat F-100Cs & Ds were known for their close-air-support. The two-seat F-100Fs, first used as trainers in the States, were used as Fast-FAC aircraft in the "Commando Sabre" program with the call-sign, "Misty". The "Misty" FACs flew watching for enemy troop movements, mostly on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, directing other fighter-bombers by firing white phosphorus rockets to mark targets. The first "Misty" commanding officer was awarded the Medal of Honor after being shot down and becoming a POW. His MOH was awarded for his time as a POW, when he led other prisoners in continuing to do battle against the enemy, though prisoners. The F-100 Units in Vietnam is a book to read to understand the war in the Air over the South.

As a Vietnam era USAF vet I really enjoyed this combat history of the "HUN". Close friend was at Tuy Hoa (69-70)
in the maintenance shop. Had the pleasure of meeting Maj. Don Schmenk last winter as he and his wife
vacationed at Port "A" TX. I have the utmost pride and respect for these honorable airmen....
bought this for my father in law who was a jet engine mechanic who worked on these birds in Vietnam. He is very happy with the book and he said much of the photos were taken at the same airfield that he was deployed to (Hell of a guy!). Merry Christmas Rick!
