  • Development of the aircraft began in 1956 as a smaller and cheaper alternative to the F-4 Phantom.
  • Since the United States had no need for such an aircraft in the 1960s, the F-5 became a great export item.
  • Compact, light, fast, and maneuverable, the aircraft's low acquisition and operating costs attracted the attention of many countries.
  • After flight tests in 1959, orders poured in. A total of 36 countries added F-5 fighters to their arsenals.
  • The F-5 was actually an excellent aircraft, popular with pilots and ground personnel for its ease of maintenance. In 1970, the F-5 even won an international fighter competition.

  • The aircraft earned the name Freedom Fighter during the defense of South Vietnam against the Viet Cong.
  • Licensed production also took place in Spain, Taiwan, Switzerland and South Korea,
