    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.

    Since the Soviet/Russian aircraft are assigned odd number designators (MiG-15, MiG-17, Mig-19) the MiG-28 is purely a fictional designator for F-5 aircraft used in the movie "Top Gun". The Soviet aircraft in the movie were 3 F-5Es and 1 F-5F supplied by the VFC-13 Saints and VFA-127 "Desert Bogeys" and painted with a temporary semi-gloss black scheme with pilot names printed in Cyrillic. The aircraft had the shark nose radome and leading edge extension modifications. These MiG-28 aircraft were never clearly identified as belonging to a specific country although a certain country came to the viewers mind.
