SUPER DECAL FOR 4 VERSIONS - COLOR INSTRUCTION SHEET
The F-86 Saber single-engine jet fighter was developed by the North American Air Force in the late 1940s and became a symbol of postwar military aviation. The fighter was characterized by the adoption of the typical swept wing, by the large front air intake and by the use of the General-Electric J47 jet engine. Its flying qualities 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 12.7 mm caliber 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 life to the first "dogfights" among jet aircraft in the history of the air force.
