The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonic
fighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew on July 30,
1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5�s was
produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more
than 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license
in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.
This Northrop F-5E Tiger II was provided to the South Vietnam Air Force and was returned
to the USN as 730855 C/N R-1036. In April 1989 the aircraft became the property of
VMFT-401 �Snipers� Adversary Squadron at Yuma, Arizona as Adversary 01. Marine
Fighter Training Squadron 401 (VMFT-401 �Snipers�) was activated in March 1986 at
Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona and is the USMC�s only adversary squadron. In
2006 F-5E 730855 was sent to VFC-13 �Fighting Saints� and in 2012 retired to AMARC.
