360° Cockpit View F-5 Tiger II Supersonic Fighter Aircraft

360° Cockpit View F-5 Tiger II Supersonic Fighter Aircraft | The F-5 Tiger II, a single-seat twin-engined supersonic fighter aircraft, was developed by Northrop Grumman, US. The aircraft took its maiden flight on 11 August 1972 and entered into service in 1975. It is the upgraded version of the F-5A Freedom fighter aircraft developed by Northrop Grumman in early 1959. The production of F-5A-21 began in 1970 by Northrop Grumman and at the same time the aircraft was renamed ‘F-5E Tiger II’. The avionics of the F-5E Tiger II are more sophisticated compared to the earlier version F-5A aircraft. It rolled out from production in 1987 and since then has undergone various upgrades to compete with changing combat environments. The aircraft costs are low and can be easily maintained compared to the F-15 and F-16 aircraft. It was used in the Cold War by the US Air Force (USAF) for training and war purposes. The aircraft can accommodate a single pilot. F-5 Tiger II orders and development The Switzerland Government unveiled a decision in January 2010 to replace its F-5 Tiger II fleet with modern combat aircraft as the fleet is approaching the end of its operational life. The Swiss Air Force acquired 66 F-5E single-seater aircraft under the armaments programme in 1975. Northrop Grumman signed a contract with RUAG aviation in May 2010 to provide worldwide sustainment and lifecycle logistics and offer a broad capability to customers of F-5 Tiger aircraft. In August 2010, the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) decided to incorporate advanced ejection seats in the cockpit of its F-5 fleet in order to save pilots during emergency landings. A total of 150 F-5s will be equipped with ejection seats at a cost of $4.2m. The work is scheduled for completion by 2013. The Brazilian Air Force awarded a contract to Embraer Defence and Security (EDS) in April 2011 to overhaul 11 additional F-5 jet fighters. EDS subsequently awarded an $85m subcontract to AEL Sistemas to offer engineering services and supply mission computers, display systems, radars, electronic warfare systems, ammunition management systems and modern avionics suite. The overhaul is scheduled for completion by 2013. F-5E Tiger II aircraft variants The F-5E Tiger II aircraft has two variants, namely F-5E Tiger III and F-5EM. The F-5E Tiger III is an upgraded model of the F-5E Tiger II and is principally used by the Chilean Air Force for training its pilots. In 2009, the 16 F-5E Tiger III aircraft were replaced with F-16 MLU T5. The F-5EM, another variant, is an advanced model of the F-5E and was developed by Northrop Grumman for the Brazilian Air Force. Supersonic fighter aircraft design The aircraft is designed to offer great versatility and superiority during air-to-ground and air-to-air operations. It has been designed to have only 30% of the gross weight of the F-4 aircraft. The length and width of the fuselage section was extended to accommodate the powerful J85 engine and more fuel. 1.
