F-86 Sabre
Back

One of the all time most important fighters in aviations (short) history, the F-86 Sabre was a significant weapon system, and a stunningly pretty airplane. Serving in the Korean war, it established a 10-1 kill ratio (though some would question this) and it's own mythology.

The Navalized version of the Sabre, the aircraft the Sabre was derived from is the FJ-1 - 3 Fury.
