F-84G Thunderjet

Immediately after the Second World War, the American company Republic, began working on a new turbo-jet fighter-bomber.  F.84 Thunderjet was developed on a simple but effective design   with a large frontal air intake, straight wings and a robust tricycle landing gear. Thanks to the General Electric / Allison J35 turbo-jet engine, F-84 Thunderjet was able to reach 1,000 Km / h. It was armed with six 12.7 mm machine guns  and it could carry an offensive load of nearly 900 kg. The F-84G, entered production in 1951, is one of the latest versions of the Republic fighter-bomber. In addition to the USAF it was used by many NATO countries, including several fighter-bomber squadrons of Italian Aeronautica Militare,  in accordance with the Mutual Defense Assistance Act.
