Utilizing four Bristol Olympus turbojet engines, it was designed to be a warplane. However, it didn’t have any defensive capabilities thus relied on speed and a high altitude 55,000-foot ceiling to effectively avoid enemy planes.

The Republic XF-84H “Thunderscreech” was the loudest plane ever built. During the 1950s, the US Navy wanted an aircraft carrier-based plane that could take off without a catapult. 

As a result, Republic Aviation took its F-84H Thunderstreak turbojet fighter and then fitted it with a 5,850 hp turboprop engine.
