Entwicklung

The Republic F-84 Thunderjet was an American turbojet fighter-bomber aircraft. Originating as a 1944 US Air Forces proposal for a "day fighter", the P-84 flew in 1946. The P-84B was the first production version of the Thunderjet. The designation of the P-84B was changed to F-84B on 11. June 1948.

80 obsolete F-84Bs were transferred to the US Navy during the 1950s, where they were used as target drones. These aircraft were re-designated F-84KX
