Beautiful FJ-5A and FJ-5T models.  Perhaps a FJ-5TE as the USN equivalent of an early F-100-based Wild Weasel?  In either standard gull grey over white or in a variation of some of the camouflage efforts the USN trialed.

Like this "Navalised" F-100 ....     
F-100N.   

A basic F-100 airframe with strengthened undercarriage, arrestor hook, a modified vertical stabilizer to allow for hangar deckhead clearance, an angled intake to improve airflow at high AoA and of course... folding wings.

   ...Last picture has side intake ! 

Well spotted, my mistake  :-[ . I was using it to illustrate the undercarriage and hook arrangement, however that image is actually one of the two prototypes of the XF-100N.





The design was rejected by the USN but was developed into the F2J  model that had a higher, "shoulder" mounted wing and different undercarriage arrangement. The F2J was adopted by the Royal Navy where it was called the Rapier, as featured in an earlier profile. When the Royal Navy lost it's carrier fleet the remaining Rapiers were transferred to the RAF where they served in the low level strike role.
