The US designation would more likely be F-105H as it was the next letter in the sequence,just as the Brit phantoms were F-4K and F-4M because of the designation standards.Designating the RAF F-111 as the F-111K is anomalous, the next available letter in the sequence was 'G', which was used much later for FB-111As reconfigured in the '80s forthe tactical role. All I can figure is that they chose 'K' to give it some commonality withPhantoms for publicity purposes. Where the notion that 'K' = Brit started is a good question.
