The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonicfighter 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-5ís 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. Primary Role: Light Fighter.

In 1972 South Vietnam began to receive the first of 52 Northrop F-5E Tiger II aircraft. With the collapse of the South Vietnamese Government 877 aircraft of various types were captured by North Vietnam forces. Of the 877 captured aircraft 41 were F-5s. In November 1975 the VPAF offered the Soviets the opportunity to select aircraft, spare engines and parts to take back to the Soviet Union. The chosen F-5E aircraft was Northrop F-5E 73-00867 c/n R.1048. The F-5E was used in flight evaluations against their MiG-21.
