    Italeri F-5A Freedom Fighter 1441


    During The 1950S, The American Aircraft Company Northrop Began Developmental Work Into A Simple And “Low Cost” Fighter That Would Meet The Needs Of Several Nato Member Air Forces. The F-5 Met The Precise Specification, It Being A Light Single-Seat Fighter, Small In Size But Extremely Manoeuvrable And Effective. It Was Relatively Simple And Cheap To Produce And Was Operationally Efficient. The Initial Version Produced By Northrop, Designated F-5 A “Freedom Fighter”, Was Fitted With Two General Electric J85-Ge-13 Engines And Could Attain A Maximum Speed Of 1,700 Km / H. Armed With Two 20 Mm. Guns Installed In The Nose, The F-5 Was A Credible "Multi-Role" Aircraft Due To Its Weapons Load Capability, Which Could Offer A Wide Range Of Offensive Options For Both Air Defence And Ground Attack Missions. This Multi-Role Aspect Of The Aircraft Ensured Its Rapid Take-Up By Many Air Forces.
