The F-84 thing sounds interesting, would love to see more on it. Surprised
they would use them rather than the F-86s as once spotted it's more than 60
kts slower than an angry MiG-15bis.
Yes, I think you're right on. Although the program mentioned that they
used F-114 or maybe F-116 later on in the program.
You also sound right on the '86 rather than the slower '84 during the
Korean War It is my understanding these planes were unarmed.
