Description

The Northrop F-20 Tigershark (initially F-5G) was a privately financed light fighter, designed and built by Northrop. Its development began in 1975 as a further evolution of Northrop’s F-5E Tiger II, featuring a new engine that greatly improved overall performance, and a modern avionics suite including a powerful and flexible radar. Compared with the F-5E, the F-20 was much faster, gained beyond-visual-range air-to-air capability, and had a full suite of air-to-ground modes capable of firing most U.S. weapons. With these improved capabilities, the F-20 became competitive with contemporary fighter designs such as the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, but was much less expensive to purchase and operate.

To prevent front-line fighter technology from falling into the wrong hands, the U.S. Department of Defense launched a project in the late 1970s that would produce less advanced aircraft for sale to  allies.

Approximately $1.2 billion was spent by #Northrop developing the #F20 #Tigershark. But when policy changes during the Reagan administration left it competing directly for sales with the superior F-16, the project was abandoned. Just three prototypes had been built — and only one survives.

Still, the F-20’s speed and aggressive lines captured the hearts of military aircraft enthusiasts — and of like-minded R/C modelers, who’ll find plenty of both available in this #Jager #Hobby  #EDF #Scalemodel #Kit
