Large numbers of F-105's were used in the Vietnam war and suffered heavy losses, mainly from Anti Aircraft guns and missiles, due to their low level attack role. In air combat F-105's shot down more enemy fighters than they lost in air combat. Later on it was used in 'Wild Weasel' missions, where converted F-105's carried anti radar missiles and detectors to engage and destroy enemy SAM radars, thus suppressing the enemy's main defence against air attacks.
