Aircraft's nose profile

Image Source

Does anyone know what airplane is shown in this picture? It looks like the Republic F-84, but I'm not sure because the front landing gear is under the nose on the F-84 and this one is further back.

Based on what I find from the marking on the plane of "8-MV", it appears to be a Dassault Mystère IV A. The image on the non-Wikipedia page looks identical to the one in your image (I can't put that image here because it is copy-protected).
