The F-105 Thunderchief holds the record for the biggest and heaviest single seat, single engine combat aircraft ever made. First flown in 1955, it was designed as a low level attack aircraft, with the possible mission of delivering a nuclear strike. The F-105 was capable of reaching Mach 2 and could carry up to 14000lbs of ordnance and as a result by the time of the Vietnam war it was the USAF's primary attack aircraft. 

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.
