    F86D sabre dog

    I know it was a pure interceptor but can the F86D theoretically carry A2G ordnance like rockets and bombs on the under wing pylons normally reserved for fuel tanks ?
    if so how much will the range be of such a beast

    Not in USAF service.
    They did not have provisions for bombs or wing mounted rockets.
    I would doubt if Air Defence Command pilots were current in air to ground delivery...though I would guess they would if had some basic training in fighter school.

    I can't vouch for the Italians and their F-86Ks or the Thais and their Ls....they may have had local mods.

    You are right, I suppose one could hang bombs from them in a pinch. If course without bombsights...

    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
