Northrop F-5 Agressor

Northrop F-5 Agressor - F 5 Agressor, 1980, Fighter, Northrop
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
The Northrop F-5 is a part of a family of light supersonic fighter aircraft, initially designed in the late 1950's by Northrop Corporation.

Being smaller and simpler than contemporaries such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, the F-5 cost less to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft.

According to Pierre Sprey, it was perhaps the most effective U.S. air-to-air fighter in the 1960's and early 1970's.

A small visual and radar cross section size and consequent detection difficulty often conferred the F-5 the advantage of surprise.

The aircraft also has a high sortie rate, low accident rate, high manoeuvrability, and is armed with a combination of 20mm cannon and heat seeking missiles.

The flying qualities of the F-5 are often highly rated, comparable to the North American F-86 Sabre and the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon.

Fiscally, it is reportedly unmatched among supersonic fighters, contributing to its long service life.
