F-86F Saber

 

SUPER DECAL FOR 3 VERSIONS - COLOR INSTRUCTION SHEET

The single-engine jet fighter F-86 Saber was developed by the US Air Force company North American in the late 1940s and became a symbol of post-war military aviation. The fighter was characterized by the adoption of the typical arrow wing, the large front air intake and the use of the General-Electric J47 jet engine. His flying skills in terms of speed and performance were optimal for the time and very different from those of fighters with the traditional piston engine. It was armed with 6 Browning M3 12.7mm machine guns installed in the muzzle. It was widely used by the USAF and actively participated in the Korean War where it directly confronted the Soviet fighter Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-15 giving birth to the first "dogfights" among jet planes in the history of the air force.
