F5 Tiger E II or F5 Tiger E III or


Go to solution Solved by Rudel_chw,

Good morning,

 

Probably it is a stupid question but I have a doubt that I can´t solve myself. I understand that the F5 tiger E is in reality the III version as per the real manual (T.O. 1F-5E-1-1984_OCR) due to all the panels instrumentation match with the 3th version of this aircraft, in addition in DCS manual in the page number 2 the name is about version 3 as you can see below. Then, why the module is called the F5 Tiger E II instead F5 Tiger E III?

 

Thanks in advance.

The aircraft is actually the F-5E Tiger II ... this aircraft has several variants:

 

E

E-1

E-2

E-3

 

All of them are Tiger II

It might be called Tiger II because there had already been an aircraft named Tiger (the F-11) when the F-5E came out.  The US military has reused other names in this manner, such as the A-7 Corsair II, F-4 Phantom II, A-10 Thunderbolt II, F-35 Lightning II, C-17 Globemaster III, etc.
