The KF-5E Jegong-Ho is a South Korean variant of the American Northrop F-5E, in service with the Republic of Korea Air Force.

HistoryEdit

The F-5E Tiger II is a twin-engine, single-seat, lightweight tactical fighter. The E-model is essentially an improved F-5A with more powerful J85 engines, leading-edge extensions, longer fuselage, and a radar, which the F-5A and B lacked (Emerson Electric AN/APQ-153). Like the F-5A, the F-5E was a highly successful export fighter. South Korea initially bought the F-5E in 1974, and Korean Air began license-building the Tiger II as the KF-5E starting in 1982.

OverviewEdit

The KF-5E Jegong-Ho is a relatively inexpensive air superiority fighter available to South Korean and NATO-allied decks. Essentially taking the loadout of the Canadian CF-116 Freedom Fighter from Wargame: AirLand Battle, the KF-5E is an exceptional, inexpensive helicopter hunter, packing six AIM-9J Sidewinder missiles and a pair of Pontiac M39A2 20mm cannons. While the KF-5E does feature ECM, it is particularly weak (10%), and this combined with its relatively slow speed make the KF-5E vulnerable to enemy fighters and Integrated Air Defense Systems (IADS). Scramble the KF-5E at the appropriate time, or possibly with another fighter as escort, and it can launch devastating attacks against helicopters, or can be used as an expedient bomber interceptor.
