I'm looking for an aerodynamic model (polar) of the F-84F Thunderstreak. Does anyone know of one in the public domain? Previously I found one of the F-104A, in a NACA report, and one of the BQM-34A target drone in an AF report. And for my Me 163B website I found a few too:

Me 163B polars

I would like to try to analyze the LABS manoeuver flown by the F-84F.

If you've tried the normal NACA/NASA tech report archive, the only other place I'd suggest is the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). I'd provide a link, but they don't seem to be working for me now.

At the tactical/squadron/crew level the VG diagram is the primary ref that the guys know cold. They would have been classified back in the day.

Thanks for the tips! I found one useful report on the NASA report server: NACA RM L57E17 'Time-history Data of Maneuvers Performed by a Republic F-84F Airplane During Squadron Operational Training'. It contains data of a few LABS manouevers, and it's roughly what I was trying to analyze myself. It's a great start, thanks!
