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

HistoryEdit

StrangerealEdit

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 Second Usean 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 universeEdit

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

Infinity universeEdit

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.
