F-100 Super Sabre at War

The F-100 Super Sabre marked a real revolution in aircraft design. A celebration of this truly remarkable fighter, F-100 Super Sabre highlights the many firsts in a long and distinguished career: The Super Sabre preceded the Soviet Union’s MIG-19 into the supersonic arena by as much as five months.

It was the first operational jet fighter to exceed Mach I in level flight. And in its heyday the F-100 set a raft of speed and altitude records. In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings and photographs, F-100 Super Sabre details the aircraft's every variation, its weaponry, and equipment.

F-100 Super Sabre at War

The first in a noble line of fighters soon to be known as "The Century Series," the F-100 had the F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Star Fighter, F-105 Thunderchief, and the venerable F-160 Delta Dart as stablemates. In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings and photographs, F-100 Super Sabre details the aircrafts every variation, her weaponry, and equipment. The book is a fitting tribute to the fighter nicknamed "Hundert" or more affectionately, "The Hun"--an aircraft loved by nearly everyone who flew or tended her and respected by all.

BOOK REVIEWS:
“This title in the new At War series examines the history of this famous fighter, from its development to its operational record ... The chapter on the development of the F-100 covers this nicely, and provides a great insight as to how aircraft came to be during the 1950s … For a single reference on the F-100, this book does an excellent job of covering all aspects of the Super Sabre. In addition to the nicely written text, the book is filled with photos and drawings, providing plenty of inspiration and reference for the modeler. Many of the drawings come from the Tech Orders for the F-100 and provide information not often seen in other books. With the recent Trumpeter 1/32 F-100 kit out, this is a timely release and recommended for those interested in early supersonic jets.” --Internet Modeler

“A celebration of this truly remarkable fighter, this book highlights many firsts in a long and distinguished career … In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings, profiles and photographs, Tom Gardner details the aircraft’s every variation, her weaponry, and equipment. The newest edition to the popular ‘At War’ series, this book serves as a fitting tribute to the fighter nicknamed ‘Hundart’ or more affectionately, ‘The Hun’ – an aircraft loved by nearly everyone who flew or tended her and respected by all.” --Flying Models
