I know this is a little off subject, but how do you think the F-20 Tigershark would've matched up against a Gripen or an F-16 for that matter, had it gone into production. If I recall, the F-20 was an F-5 fitted with an F-16 engine (or similar to it). If it incorporated current avionics and what not, would it be able to hang with new generation fighters such as the Gripen in a dogfight? I know F-5s are (or were) used as aggressors and trainers as well, so I'm wondering if that engine modification would've boosted its performance.
