The  Northrop F-5 was born in the '60s to meet  the needs of many Countries belonging to NATO that  required a  multi-role fighter simple, low cost and easy to maintain. In  the early  70s the improved version, called F-5E Tiger II,  has been developed. It  was characterized by the adoption of the  new General Electric J85  turbo-jet engines able to provide much higher  thrust and a better  performance. The F-5 Tiger II has a lengthened and enlarged fuselage,  more fuel on board able to guarantee a better operating range and an  improved avionic system  suitable to fulfill the main role of air  defense fighter. The main armament is composed by two 20mm. guns,  installed in the nose  under the cabin, and several hardpoints able to  carry combinations of  air-to-air missiles. The F-5E was a great  commercial     success. It was also produced under license in South  Korea, Taiwan  and Switzerland were in 1995 was adopted from the  national acrobatic  team “Patrouille Suisse”.
