The F-5E Tiger II is a small fighter aircraft manufactured by Northrop Grumman.

History

Strangereal

F-5E's were operated during the Belkan War. A notable unit was the Gabel Squadron led by Heiko Reck.

The ISAF Air Force and the Federal Erusea Air Force both used Tiger II's during the Continental War. One F-5E belonged to the ace pilot "Wang".

In the Circum-Pacific War, F-5E's were used by the Osean Air Defense Force and the Yuktobanian Air Force. The most prominent user was none other than the Wardog Squadron. Another notable pilot was Jack Bartlett, who kept a spare Tiger adorned with his personal emblem and number even though he never used it in the war.

During the Aurelian War, the Leasath Air Force operated the aircraft in the early days of the war. One of Leasath's aces, callsign "Ghost", also used the aircraft. The Aurelian Air Force's Gryphus Squadron was also known to use the aircraft during the Battle of Aubrey Air Base.

Joint Assault universe

Although no known units saw action during the Valahia Crisis, Antares Squadron had access to the aircraft.

Infinity universe

F-5Es were mass-produced and made available using the Advanced Automated Aviation Plant for United Nations Forces pilots to utilize during Operation Eternal Liberation.

Trivia

  • Multiple camouflage schemes are based on color schemes of F-5Es from 527th Tactical Fighter Training Aggressor Squadron of the United States Air Force, the unit used these color schemes when it was stationed at RAF Alconbury (1 April 1976 – 14 July 1988).
    • ISAF color in AC04: Blue camouflage variant#1
    • Osean color in AC5; Soldier/ BAF ace "Sternchen" color in ACZ; Special 1/ Leasath ace "Ghost" color in ACX; Color 03 in ACJA: Blue camouflage variant#2
    • Yuktobanian color in AC5; Mercenary/ BAF squadron "Gabel" color in ACZ; Leasath color in ACX; Color 02 in ACJA: Brown camouflage
    • These schemes were designed to mimic a Warsaw Pact aircraft, specifically the MiG-21, which the F-5 matches in manueverability.
  • The Knight/BAF color in ACZ is based on the black and white camouflage on Northrop T-38 Talon.
