The North American F-86F Sabre was a jet fighter succeeding the P-51D Mustang. The first prototype XP-86 first flew in October 1947. F-86E was a conversion of the first production model F-86A, but the lessons learned from the Russian MiG-15 during the Korean War resulted in the need for additional improvements. These improvements defined the F-86F, first flying in March 1952. F-86F is powered by a J47GE-27 engine, equipped with six 12.7mm machine guns and it carries missiles and bombs under the wings. The F version eliminated the leading edge slat from the wing, but the F-40 saw it brought back. Japan’s Air Force first deployed the F-86F-40 in 1956 as a primary fighter. The models supplied from the US were the old ones with the boundary layer fences and they were re-built to the slat model in Japan. A total of over 330 F-86F’s were supplied from the US, knock-down built and license-produced by Mitsubishi.
