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-guided missiles.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.Key Features of the DCS: F-5E Tiger II:Professional Flight Model that accurately mimics the performance and flight characteristics of this legendary fighterHighly detailed, six-degrees-of-freedom (6 DOF) cockpitInteract with cockpit controls with your mouseFully modelled weapon systemAccurate F-5E model with multiple country markingsDetailed modelling of the F-5E instruments, engine, radios, fuel, electrical, and hydraulic systemsSingle missions and full set of training missions will be created while in Early AccessFull and Quick Start manuals in Russian and English languagesExtended Campaign for the F-5E by Maple Flags Missions Developer (not included in the module package)
