Pros and cons

Pros:

  • The fastest speed in jet aircraft category
  • The nose mount M39 cannon, no overheating problem, great ammo count and have tracer at air target belt
  • Stable platform for aiming
  • Good high-speed turn rate
  • Decent roll rate
  • Variety of payload options including rockets, bombs, AGM, and air to air missiles; can destroy 2 bases when carrying M117 bomb
  • 4 x AIM-9B air to air missiles
  • Effective air break

Cons:

  • Avoiding air-to-air missiles causes aircraft to bleed speed
  • Terrible energy retention during a turn, aircraft will bleed speed while turning
  • Your low-speed acceleration is one of the worst in a jet, many of the 9.0 jets can out accelerate the F-100, even when using afterburner
  • Flying brick in low speed, terrible maneuverability and turn rate at low speed
  • As the speed is much faster and the fighter is much heavier, the pilot is more likely to black-out
  • Still rip when using boosters, but not as easy as F86 Saber
  • Afterburner utilizes an excessive amount of fuel, use 20 minutes worth minimum, 30 minutes recommended
