T-38 Talon - Light Trainer - NASA Livery

Upvotes are appreciated!




This airframe has no weapons, It is a trainer.

Short History of the aircraft:

In the 1950s, during Northrop's light fighter program that lead to the creation of the F-5A Freedom Fighter, It was thought perfect as also a trainer aircraft for the USAF, light, inexpensive, easy to maintain. The T-38 took flight before the F-5A, in the same year, 1959, and introduced a year before the F-5A in 1961. The T-38 has went on to be extensively used in many roles. Including the job of help guiding the American Space Shuttles in for landing.

STS-3 Landing, T-38 Talons by its side.


Thats all for now, thanks everyone for all the upvotes and support on my F-5E!

    @Shugie planes under 600 part can considered "mobile friendly" (for most users)

    @VeroViper Doubt it lol, but thank you, because I use a NASA supercomputer as a PC, I can run several thousand part builds perfectly fine, and right now I have no one to test if its mobile friendly or not
