The F-100 Super Sabre was a jet fighter that served with the U.S. Air Force from 1954 to 1971. It was capable of supersonic speed and made extensive use of titanium throughout the aircraft. During the Vietnam War, the Super Sabre flew extensively over South Vietnam as the primary close air support jet until replaced by the subsonic Vought A-7 Corsair. The F-100 also served in several NATO air forces and with other U.S. allies. It was often referred to as "The Hun".
