From front and side view, it looks quite nice. But the exhust nozzle seems a little too small for a fighter jet :D

hey guys, are we only comparing the look here? If not, I remember reading articles about how FACh Tiger III has provided USAF Viper a tough match. Can't seem to locate these articles anywhere... :(

Do your homework, Tiger!

I remember watching a tv programme from Discovery Channel where the USAF had their F-5 painted similar to those aircraft found in North Korea and Iraq.

The F-5 were pilot by ex-topgun and alway have simulated war against the F-16, F-15 trainee pilot. Any pilot who have fought against f-5 agree that the F-5 was a hard target and I always believe it.

Yeah (viper032386), the Philippines sure needs new jets. What do they have, like four F-5s there? And I don't think they even work :lol: *sigh* would be nice to see the PAF with some Vipers. I read in a website (forgot the address) that the Philippines was a potential customer for the Gripen. I didn't think the PAF had the financial assets to do this at this time. I was wondering if you knew anything about this viper032386. As for the F-5, it might pose a problem to the Viper if they came in swarms. They had Iceman pooping his pants in Top Gun :D

I knew that FACH F-5E "Tiger III" are superior than F-16A in dogfight combat... =)
