F-84D wing tank without fairing

F-84E wing tank Fletcher style

F-84G wing tank with fairing

These three photos represent, in general, the auxiliary wing tank variations used (excepting the standard tanks without fins used on early models) on the F-84 Thunderjets of various models. Top photo is the tank on the F-84D model which has had the wing to tank fairing removed. Middle photo is the Fletcher tank as used on the T-33A; these were rarely used in the U.S., being used more on USAFE F-84s. Bottom photo is the tank as furnished with the kit on the F-84G model which has the wing to tank fairing in place.
