As a starting point, what was the role of the Alaska ADF, who were you defending yourself against, (USSR, Canada or the USA).
Actually all of the above, although it would have been aligned with the west at the time of it's formation. However over all the services I would expect that a large portion of it's equipment over the years would come from the US, especially with income from land and airspace leases to the US.
What I am envisioning at this time, is that the original plan was to form up two squadrons with US provided F-100D/F aircraft and then two squadrons would have formed up with the CF-105 Arrow aircraft. However as we know the Arrow was cancelled and the last example hidden in a barn somewhere in Canada. When the Arrow was canceled the US and Alaska agreed that the USAF
would provide long range inteception of Soviet aircraft (Also justifies the continued precence of the USAF
in Alaska) leaving the ground attack mission to the ADF(Alaska Defense Services).
Come to think about it, one real possiblity, if the Gnat doens't work out would to say that after the independence vote, earnest money was put down on the CF-105's, part of the money instead of being returned on Diffenbakers cancelation of the project was rolled to a purchase of Tutor trainers from Canada.
That many be the way I go.
