That's a Republic F105 Thunderchief, nicknamed "Thud" by its pilots. These aircraft were revered by their pilots and maintainers, and abused by the politicians who controlled the war in Viet Nam. If you want the nitty gritty about them from the people who knew them best then watch Thud Pilots (a documentary) on Amazon Prime.
If you can get past the extremely cringey, heavily biased "god, guns 'n 'Murica!" narration Amazon Prime has what is an otherwise excellent documentary about F-105's in Vietnam called Thud Pilots
That is a valid comparison.
I wasn't saying the F-35 was a shit plane by making the comparison to the Thunder chief (infact a lot of pilots who flew it said they wouldn't have wanted to fly anything else).
There is a really good documentary on Amazon prime called THUD pilots that goes into this, it is definitely worth a watch if you like military aviation.
For anyone interested
Its free on Prime streaming. Watched it and its pretty good.
