NORTH AMERICAN F-86 SABRE
When intelligence reports indicated that Russia was supplying modern Mig jetfighters to the North Korean Communists early in the Korean War, the Air Forcequickly dispatched its latest fighters to the United Nations command: F-86 Sabres.In short order, the Sabre proved to be the outstanding fighter of this jet air war.First flown in 1947, the F-86 featured an air scoop in the nose, six rapid-firing.50-caliber machine guns of advanced design mounted along the sides of the airscoop, and a powerful General Electric jet engine developing 6,000 pounds thrust.Swept-back wings and tail helped give late models a top speed of nearly 700 milesper hour. With superior armament, a radar gunsight and highly skilled pilots,F-86s proved deadly foes to the swift, agile Russian Migs. In three years of combat,Sabres shot down a total of 801 Migs against a loss of 58, an overwhelming14 to 1 ratio.
