The Northrop F-5B Freedom Fighter and F-5F Tiger II are part of a supersonic light fighter family, initially designed in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation.

Smaller and simpler than other current aircraft, the F-5 cost less to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft.

The F-5 is a small, highly aerodynamic fighter around two compact and high-thrust General Electric J85 engines,combining high performance and low cost of maintenance.

Though primarily designed for the day air superiority role, the aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform.

The F-5A entered service in the early 1960s during the Cold War.

Though the USAF had no acknowledged need for a light fighter, it did procure roughly 1,200 Northrop T-38 Talon trainer aircraft, which were directly based on the F-5A.
