    Description

    Hobbymaster 1/72nd scale HA1048 TF-104G 825, NASA Dryden Fight Test Center, Edwards AFB, 1987. The Lockheed F-104C came about as the result of Tactical Air Command (TAC) decision that the F-104A wasn�t a capable supersonic tactical strike fighter. The F-104C was equipped with an in-flight refueling probe to extend its range and was capable of delivering a tactical nuclear weapon. Put into service during the Vietnam War the USAF realized the F-104C wasn�t the aircraft for Vietnam and was replaced with the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The surviving F-104Cs were transferred to the 198th TFS of the Puerto Rico Air National Guard.
