Northrop F-5
The NORTHROP F-5A AND F-5B FREEDOM FIGHTER and the F-5E AND F-5F TIGER II are part of a supersonic light fighter family, initially designed in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation
Northrop Corporation
. Being smaller and simpler than contemporaries such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II , the F-5 cost less to both procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft. The F-5 started life as a privately funded light fighter program by Northrop in the 1950s. The design team wrapped a small, highly aerodynamic fighter around two compact and high-thrust General Electric J85 engines, focusing on performance and low cost of maintenance. Though primarily designed for the day air superiority role, the aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform. The F-5A entered service in the early 1960s. During the Cold War , over 800 were produced through 1972 for U.S. allies

Light Fighter
LIGHT FIGHTERS are fighter aircraft towards the low end of the practical range of weight, cost, and complexity over which fighters are fielded. The term LIGHTWEIGHT FIGHTER is more commonly used in the modern literature, and by example tends to imply somewhat more capable aircraft than light fighters at the very low end of the practical weight range, but the terms overlap and are sometimes used interchangeably. Whatever term is used, the concept is to be on the generally lower half of the practical range, but still with carefully selected competitive features, in order to project highly effective force per unit of budget via an efficient design. As well designed lightweight fighters have proven able to match or beat heavier aircraft plane for plane for many missions, and to significantly excel them in budgetary efficiency, light/lightweight fighters have proven to be a strategically valuable concept

Islamic Republic Of Iran Air Force
The ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN AIR FORCE (IRIAF; Persian : نیروی هوایی ارتش جمهوری اسلامی ایران‎‎) is the aviation branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army . The present Air Force came into being in the early 1980s when the former Imperial Iranian Air Force was renamed. The Air Force has attempted with some success to maintain in service the large number of American-built aircraft which Iran acquired during the Shah 's regime. The Air Force has turned to purchases of Soviet and Chinese aircraft, as well as pressing ex-Iraqi aircraft into service, and indigenously built aircraft, in order to maintain a capable force. As of June 2016, the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force possesses 348 fighters, making it the ninth most powerful air arm in the world, on paper

SHAPED SONIC BOOM DEMONSTRATION, also known as the SHAPED SONIC BOOM EXPERIMENT, was a two-year program that used a Northrop F-5 E with a modified fuselage to demonstrate that the aircraft's shock wave, and accompanying sonic boom , can be shaped, and thereby reduced. The program was a joint effort between NASA's Langley Research Center , Dryden Flight Research Center

Northrop F-20 Tigershark
The NORTHROP F-20 TIGERSHARK (initially F-5G) was a privately financed light fighter , designed and built by Northrop . Its development began in 1975 as a further evolution of Northrop's F-5E Tiger II , featuring a new engine that greatly improved overall performance, and a modern avionics suite including a powerful and flexible radar . Compared with the F-5E, the F-20 was much faster, gained beyond-visual-range air-to-air capability, and had a full suite of air-to-ground modes capable of firing most U.S. weapons. With these improved capabilities, the F-20 became competitive with contemporary fighter designs such as the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon

, but was much less expensive to purchase and operate. Much of the F-20's development was carried out under a US Department of Defense (DoD) project called "FX"

Supersonic
SUPERSONIC TRAVEL is a rate of travel of an object that exceeds the speed of sound (Mach 1). For objects traveling in dry air of a temperature of 20 °C (68 °F) at sea level , this speed is approximately 343 m/s , 1,125 ft/s , 768 mph , 667 knots , or 1,235 km/h . Speeds greater than five times the speed of sound (Mach 5) are often referred to as hypersonic . Flights during which only some parts of the air surrounding an object, such as the ends of rotor blades, reach supersonic speeds are called transonic . This occurs typically somewhere between Mach 0.8 and Mach 1.23. Sounds are traveling vibrations in the form of pressure waves in an elastic medium. In gases, sound travels longitudinally at different speeds, mostly depending on the molecular mass and temperature of the gas, and pressure has little effect. Since air temperature and composition varies significantly with altitude, Mach numbers for aircraft may change despite a constant travel speed
