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 load of bombs, rockets and napalm 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. From the earliest air-defence deployments to Thailand in 1961 to the final 'Misty' forward air control missions ten years later, Super Sabres fought MiGs and SAMs, escorted strikes and relentlessly attacked Viet Cong targets."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
