F-105 evolved from a project that begun in 51 by Republic Aviation at Farmingdale NY. They tried to design a supersonic tactical fighter-bomber to take the place of the F-84F. The massive F-105 was intended primarily for nuclear strike missions. Prototype first flew on October 22, 1955.
Based on the helicopter design Bell AH-1 Huey Cobra which was used in great numbers in Vietnam, Bell developed the improved version AH-1W SuperCobra which has better fighting power and other features. First delivery of this prototype to the US-Marine-Corps was in 1986.
