In October of 1974, Brazil Air Force (FAB) ordered 36 F-5Es. They were used to equip 1 and 2 Esquadrao of the 1o Grupo de Aviacao de Caca (1st Fighter Group) based at Santa Cruz. The FAB F-5Es have an additional dorsal fin fillet to provide improved directional stability and carry a prominent VHF blade antenna just aft of the cockpit. The FAB Tigers do not carry a local designation, and wear their model designations on the fin.
Your aircraft model will be a perfect replication with squadron markings and any tail number. We will also include pilot, WSO, and crew chief names on both sides of the canopy and any nose art. Personalized stands are included with any patch and any two lines of text. After you place your order, we will email a detailed customization form to capture the details and the ordnance of your choice. Our miniature models are also 100% customized, but do not include ordnance.
