The F5E Tiger II was a single-seat delta-winged plane designed by Northrup and was one of the most widely used airplanes. Introduced in 1972, the F-5E replaced the F-5A after having won the International Fighter Aircraft (IFA) competition. Unlike other aircraft, the Tiger II had more advantage due to its compact size, excellent maneuverability, and easy maintenance. Moreover, this aircraft is also capable of refueling in the air, proving to be a great asset as an aircraft, both for aggressive and training roles. With its upgraded avionics, the Tiger II is able to fly at supersonic speeds, making it an effective air-to-air combat plane. Aside from serving the United States Navy, the F-5E was also used by the Chinese, Korean, and Iranian Air Forces. You can now an F-5E Tiger II replica and add it to your growing collection of wood model aircraft.
