Known as the “Thud”, Republic’s F-105 Thunderchief entered service in 1958, and flew in a variety of roles through 1984. The largest single-engine fighter in the U.S.A.F.... More > inventory,the F-105 could exceed Mach 1.0 at sea level, and achieve Mach 2.0 at high altitude. It could carry up to 14,000 pounds of ordnance, or about as much as most WWII heavy bombers. The F-105 served as the primary strike aircraft in the early years of the Vietnam conflict, and its pilots flew over 20,000 missions. These included “wild weasel” flights intended to suppress North Vietnamese air defenses. The dangerous aspects of these missions help account for the aircraft’s high loss rate — out of 833 F-105s produced, 320 were lost in combat in S.E. Asia. Originally printed by the U.S. Air Force, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of one of history’s great planes.

Mathematical Modeling of Warfare and Combat Phenomenon By Jeffrey Strickland

The primary goal of this book is to assist the student to develop the skills necessary to effectively employ the ideas of mathematics to solve military problems. At the simplest level I seek to... More > promote an understanding of why mathematics is useful as a language for characterizing the interaction and relationships among quantifiable concepts, or in mathematical terms, variables. The text explores models of terrorism, attrition, search, detection, missile defense, radar, and operational reliability Throughout the text I emphasize the notion of added value and why it is the driving force behind military mathematical modeling. For a given mathematical model to be deemed a success something must be learned that was not obvious without the modeling procedure. Very often added value comes in the form of a prediction. In the absence of added value the modeling procedure becomes an exercise not unrelated to digging a ditch simply to fill it back up again.< Less
