The F-86A Sabre has been probably the most demanded plane design ever. We’re listening to your wishes and introducing this same scale counterpart to our previously released MiG 15 BIS.
Now you can compare these legends of the Korean air conflict on your own. Again this model is packed with many features, like working airbrakes, flaps, or retractable landing gear… Both planes are using the same 90 mm EDF unit, providing not only enough power, but also great sound on flybys.
The North American F-86 Sabre, is a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States‘ first swept wing fighter that could counter the swept-wing Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights in the skies of the Korean War (1950–1953), fighting some of the earliest jet-to-jet battles in history.
Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces. Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan, and Italy.
Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Sabre is by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.
