## About This Content
The F-5E was developed by Northrop Corporation in early 1970s. The light
tactical fighter is an upgraded version based on previous F-5A developments.
The F-5s’ combat role encompasses air superiority, ground support, and ground
attack. Given its mission flexibility, ease of operation, and low cost, the
Tiger II has, and continues to serve, air forces across the globe.
The F-5Е is armed with two 20-mm М39-А3 cannons with 280 rounds per each
cannon. The cannons are located in the nose section, forward of the cockpit.
Special deflectors are used to avoid compressor stall conditions caused by hot
gas ingestion as a bi-product of operating the M-39-A3. Each cannon is capable
of firing at a rate of 1500 to 1700 rounds per minute.
Each wingtip incorporates a launcher rail capable of firing AIM-9 infrared-
Five hard points (one centerline pylon and four underwing pylons) allow the
aircraft to carry different types of air-to-ground weapons (bombs, cluster
munitions, and rockets) 6,400 pounds (about 3000 kg) in total. In addition,
illumination ammunition and cargo containers can be attached. To increase
flight duration and range, external fuel tanks can be attached to three hard
points (a centerline pylon and two inboard pylons). Maneuverability and speed
can be maximized in combat by jettisoning all external stores.
