In order to make proper F-5N it is needed to remove guns, I guess. Is it worth it?

That's why ealier in this thread ( and in the other f5e to f5n thread) I said splitting between a usaf f5e and swiss f5e..... not specifically f5n, it's just that its established that F5ns are otherwise swiss f5e,s therefore us navy f5 manual is still valid alternative source to model them given the same airframe and avionics. And therefore swiss f5e is close enough to also be used as a f5n with skins.

Neither would I mind the above but I suggest splits only within f5e ( particularly f5e3) type family purely to avoid as many FM changes as possible or avoid them altogether. F5A is much more significant remodel to both differing aerodynamics, engine performance and much earlier avionics.

Alot of more degree in commonality between current existing f5e3 and what I proposed to go from there between usaf f5e, and a swiss f5e and or f5n.

If I'm not mistaken, the F-5E has the "pointy nose" and smaller LERX, that could mean FM changes .


I think that the INS and digital radios of the Swiss F-5 could be a good compromise .

This is my favorite DCS plane, so the more versions the better .


And I would like (and pay for) an F-5N with cannons .
By the way, anyone knows what radar the F-5N has?

Yes Swiss F5E and F5N have the "pointy shark nose" and larger LEX and the AUTO flaps function. But so does the current F5E3. After all these were changes that came with that specific E production model which IRRC was a relatively late batch starting in 1979.


These is also a aerodynamic characteristics that was present on of USAF aggressor based F5E's ( at least those that are the E3 model), so really there would be no FM changes needed from the current F5E3, just removal of AN/ALE40 Countermeasure and AN/ALR 87 RWR ( which is an export derivative of the AN/ALR 46V anyways) , because they weren't installed in USAF aggressor fleet.


Edit:

According to natops manual the F5N has the AN/APQ159 V3 or V5 radar. V5 radar is not more capable than the APQ 159V3 just described a product improvement to increase reliability and reduce weight to that of the earlier AN/APQ 153 Radar. In the manual both V3 and V5 are lumped into the same category and description and diagram of thier operations are the same.
