– FSX F-105 S# 62-4438 Warner Robbins

FSX F-105 S# 62-4438 Warner Robbins. A repaint of AlphaSim’s F-105 S# 62-4438, modified for for Flight Simulator X. The F105 evolved from a project that began in 1951 by Republic Aviation to develop a supersonic tactical fighter-bomber to replace the F-84F. The prototype first flew on October 22, 1955, but the first production aircraft, the F-105B, as not delivered to the USAF until 1958. The F-105D all-weather strike fighter and the two-place F-105F dual-purpose trainer-fighter also were built before the F-105 production (833 aircraft) ended in 1964. During the Vietnam War a large number of the F-105F were converted to the enemy radar jamming F-105G aircraft and specialized in destroying surface-to-air missile sites. These F-105Gs with their unique missions were called “Wild Weasels”. Warner Robins Air Logistics Center managed the communications, fire control, bombing and electronic warfare systems for all F-105 aircraft. This repaint was delivered to the USAF in February 1964 as a two seat F-105F. It was later modified to the “Wild Weasel” F-105G configuration and last served with the 116th Tactical Fighter Wing (ANG) at Dobbins AFB before its retirement in 1983 when it was flown to Robins AFB for display. Package includes pictures of the actual aircraft and history. This is a repaint of the actual aircraft on display. Textures and updates by Mark Rooks of RSDG Aircraft.
