is the two seat version of F-5 Freedom Fighter AKA Tiger II light supersonic jet. The plane is used for advanced military pilot training, being one of the very few supersonic jet trainers in use anywhere in the World. In many of its variations the Freedom Fighter is still active today, mostly as aggressor/adversary aircraft. Even though introduced in the 1960s, the plane is currently being digitally refitted with potential service life well into the 2020s, maybe even further. Due to its superb flight characteristics, Tiger II is also used by NASA as well as by many private owners as a basic/intermediate jet trainer. Perhaps the most famous appearance of the F-5 is in the movie TOP GUN, where it was used as a substitute for Soviet MiGs and being called MiG-28.

The mask set features insignia markings, that can be seen on the mask sheets depicted on the cover of this set.
