Daedalus, the F-105 was a bomber, just like the F-117 is, it even had an internal bomb bay, one of the very few 1950's/60's fast jets that did (I can only think of the HS Buccanneer at the moment) that wasn't a strategic bomber.

I still think waynos is correct..
The F-4s were mainly used in NAM for Ground strike missions (like the IAF hunter) while the F-104 (Maybe 105 as well) were used for escort and interceptor roles..
I can say from experience
( "JANE's USAF" NAM missions!! )
