The F-107A was an outgrowth of studies to improve the F-100 Super Sabre firstly optimized as an interceptor then later as a ighter bomber. This effort was pursued as the F- 100B. A letter contract was issued for $6,000,000 on 21st June 1954 for up to thirty three aircraft. An amendment dated 18th April 1955 increased funding and changed the designation to F-107A. It was never given an official name and there was never an XF-107A nor a YF-107A. All were simply F-107As.
