The F-105D was first accepted on September 28 1960 and became the major variant
with 610 aircraft being built. Intended for a nuclear strike role but since the nuclear threat
became less likely the role became a high-speed bomber. The Pitot tube was moved to
the nose that had been extended approximately 15 inches more than the “B”. The “D”
received strengthened landing gear and an arrestor hook in case it over shot the runway.
During 1966 and 1967 F-105Ds managed to down 25 MiGs using the 20-mm cannon and
2 other using Side-Winder missiles.

On June 3, 1967 F-105D 60-0424 nicknamed “MICKEY TITTY Chi” flown by Major
Ralph L. Kuster Jr. of the 34th TFS/388th TFW stationed at Korat RTAFB, Thailand was
part of the attack flown against Bac Giang railway bridge. The F-105s flew a tight pod
formation so they could deploy their ECM effectively against the SAMs and AAA fire.
Kuster was the lead and used his gun camera to record the positions. Departing, they
encountered MiG-17s and Kuster another F-105 destroyed both. 60-0424 was lost to
AAA fire one month later.
