Northrop F-5 TigerEdit

The Northrop F-5A/B Freedom Fighter and F-5E/F Tiger II are part of a family of widely-used light supersonic fighter aircraft, designed and built by Northrop. Hundreds remain in service in air forces around the world in the early 21st century, and the type has also been the basis for a number of other aircraft.

The F-5 started life as a privately-funded light fighter program by Northrop in the 1950s. The first-generation F-5A Freedom Fighter entered service in the 1960s. During the Cold War, over 800 were produced through 1972 for U.S. allies.

''"The Tiger II is a capable multirole plane that can do nearly anything as long as you upgrade it. It´s not the fastest, the most maneuverable or the toughest, but it´s not like you can afford any better when you get started on this business."' - Julienne "Witch" Aleva Nikarova - Musketeers Flight on the F-5 Tiger II

"Compares favorably to the Mirage F1 in terms of price and hardpoints, but its overall performance- particularly climb rate and maxiumum airspeed- are inferior."
