Aircraft F-20 Tigershark fighter (Tiger Shark), is the result of the development of fighter aircraft F-5 Tiger II made by Northrop Corp. (now Northrop Grumman), the United States. Despite carrying the technology advanced enough to need a fighter of the 21st century and has exhibited his prowess in various exhibitions in the world including Farnborough aerospace show in the UK, the aircraft was discontinued because none of the sold aircraft, although in fact is intended to replace the aircraft F-5 Tiger II, which are operated by third world countries which generally have limited military budget. Why is the government policy of the United States alone who are not interested in this aircraft into its fleet in the ranks, other than Ronald Reagan was the government itself does not permit the sale of the plane to a country that was designated as potential buyers, namely India and Taiwan, the reason is that the plane was too good. With his modern enough, when buyers Taiwan, would make a poor connection to the United States-PRC, while if the buyers are India, it is feared will fall advanced technologies are applied to the plane through the hands of the Soviet espionage network in India. While Saudi Arabia is interested in buying some 200 aircraft to rejuvenate its fleet of 200 aircraft F-5 Tiger II, want to buy it if the plane was also included in the ranks of U.S. military operations. Fighter is actually, like when promoted, is a plane that is relatively cheap in price and operation compared to advanced fighter aircraft such as F-4 and F-16 is also aimed at friendly countries the United States. With the cost of procurement of six F-4 Phantom aircraft, can be used to hold 14 aircraft (one squadron) F-20 Tigershark. Also mentioned the cost of the flight of just less than 1000 U.S. dollars per hour. Compare with F-16 are two times as much, even a tornado that takes more than three times as much. In addition to reasonably priced and easy in maintenance, the F-20 also has a fast enough reaction time. Within 2 minutes 30 seconds F-20 is located 20 miles from his base in the height of 32,000 feet and lock the enemy aircraft within a radius of 90 km from the base. His figure is not much different from the F-5 Tiger II, has the ability to shot with twice the speed of sound (Mach-2), equipped with avionics systems and propulsion technology, the control system is quite modern, and steering are all handled electrically (fly-by- wire), which was adopted also by the F-16. Single-seat fighter with the kind of attacker tactical (tactical strike fighter), also has the capability to patrol the air (Combat Air Patrol) with a radius of 300 miles from its base and can be equipped with three 330 gallon fuel tank that can be discarded. With the additional tank, the duration of flying the F-20 increased more than 2 hours. And can be used to support fire in the air (Close Air Support). Using one engine General Electric F-404 with a diameter of 88 cm and weighing 907 kg, which also diguanakan on the F / A 18 Hornet. This engine power 60 percent greater thrust from both engines J-85-GE-21 used F-5 Tiger II with 10,000 lbs thrust. These machines are known for fuel economy with 60% consumption of fuel used by aircraft Mach-2 speed. With the same fuel, the F-20 can perform two flight sortie compared with aircraft that are used in the U.S. air fleet. When compared with the GE-79 engine that operated the F-14 Tomcat, then this machine has 19,000 fewer parts, compressors and turbines are small compared to the first machine. This machine does not have signs of stall when operated and has been tested by the U.S. Navy, including the trial in the face of pressure or force of gravity. You could say the F-20 engine is very lightweight, strong and powerful high thrust and easily treated. Radar and Avionics Equipment. No mention of what type of radar is applied in the F-20 Tigershark. Mentioned that the radar is applied has the ability to recognize all the targets, the ability to look up (look-up) and down (look down), control and determine the distance combat maneuvers and capable all-weather and maps are pretty good reading. Other equipment used is basically similar to that applied by the F-5 Tiger II, also equipped with INS (Inertial Navigation System) coupled with a Head Up Display (HUD). Armament. F-20 is equipped with two M-39 cannon 20 mm caliber bullet with a speed of 1400 rounds / minute to spare ammo belt 450. Moreover, it can also be armed with cannon GAU-8 Avenger Gatling as applied to the A-10 Thunderbolt II is proven in the war can destroy tanks. F-20 is equipped with standard missiles for air-to-air combat (Air to Air doghfight) AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles and long-range BVR (beyond visual range) AM-120 AMRAAM, air-to-surface missiles (Air Ground Missiles) AGM-65 maverick as many as four missiles, bombs and various standards such as the Mk-82 bombs, smart bombs (smart bombs) as well as GEPOD 30 mm (additional pod for canon 30 mm beyond the plane). As for the configuration of air assistance (Close Air Support) F-20 can carry seven Mk-82 bombs, two Sidewinder and two fuel tanks plus other weapons. With the ability, toughness and ease of operation and maintenance, the F-20 Tigershark is actually quite capable operated by the developed countries especially third world countries which have military budgets, especially the air force is limited. But a lack of support from the Government of the United States, with its own third world countries are reluctant to operate. It is often experienced by manufacturers of weapons of Western countries are often contrary to government policy as well as unfair competition among manufacturers of guns, so it is ironic as weapons are cheap, easy and modern often fared only reached the level of testing and prototype only.
