F-5E Tiger II

Welcome to the fabled 'MiG 28' from Top Gun!

The F-5 was a light-turned-multirole fighter designed to be as cheap as possible to produce and maintain, making it the natural predecessor to the F-16 fighting falcon.
The F-5E Tiger II is the most produced version and the version used by the Swiss Air Force in the air defence role, and is a version equipped with older avionics than seen on the later versions of the Tiger.
This particular one was known as J-3088 and was never used in frontline service. However, J-3088 was part of the Swiss Air Force aerobatics team when it suffered a mid-air collision with J-3086, whose pilot then had to eject, sustaining minor injuries. Despite the collision and the damage sustained, J-3088 managed to land safely.

there is one historical and 2 semihistorical loadouts available for this aircraft (in addition to the twin cannons in the nose):
---1--- air defence, consisting of:
- 4x fire-and-forget AAMs
- 3x drop tanks
---2--- bomber, consisting of:
- 2x fire-and-forget AAMs
-1x drop tank
- 4x 250kg bombs
---3--- Close Air Support, consisting of:
- 2x fire-and-forget AAMs
- 1x drop tank
- 2x rocket pods (7 rockets each)
- 2x AP fire-and-forget AGMs

Controls for this aircraft are as following:
---AG1--- = arrestor hook
---AG2--- = parachute
---AG3--- = detach drop tanks
---AG4--- = arm weapons
---AG5--- = detach all suspended armament
---AG6--- = landing lights
---AG7--- = taxi lights
---AG8 + VTOL up--- = gear doors
---AG8 + VTOL down = flaps
---Trim--- = trim

#important note:# when attaching drop tanks, there is a detacher inside of the
drop tank which will need to be attached to the pylon once the tank is
attached. This is there to make the double drop input easier.
