F-100 Super Sabre

The F-100 underwent numerous modifications during its lifetime. Maintenance, performance, and reliability were not particularly noteworthy features of the early F-100's.

The F-100F Wild Weasel was tasked with locating and destroying North Vietnamese enemy air defenses. The F-100 Super Sabre logged 360,283 combat sorties during the Vietnam War and its wartime operations came to end on 31 July 1971.

After the F-100 Super Sabre was withdrawn from fighter service, a large number were converted into remote-controlled drones (QF-100) under the USAF Full Scale Aerial Target (FSAT) program for use as targets for various anti-aircraft weapons, including missile-carrying fighters and fighter-interceptors, with FSAT operations being conducted primarily at Tyndall AFB, Florida.
