The Northrop F-5 was born in the '60s to satisfy the needs of many NATO countries that required a simple, cost-effective and easy-to-maintain multi-role fighter.
At the beginning of the '70s an improved version was developed, called F-5E Tiger II, which was characterized by the adoption of new General Electric J85 engines able to provide a much higher thrust.
Compared to the first F-5s, Tiger IIs have a longer fuselage, greater operational range and an avionics optimized to fulfill the primary role of air defense fighter.
The basic armament consists of two 20mm cannons, installed in the nose under the cabin, and the possibility of using various combinations of air-to-air missiles. The F-5E was a great commercial success. It was also produced under license in Switzerland, Taiwan and South Korea.
