The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonic
fighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew on July 30,
1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5’s was
produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more
than 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license
in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

Since the Soviet/Russian aircraft are assigned odd number designators (MiG-15, MiG-17,
Mig-19) the MiG-28 is purely a fictional designator for F-5 aircraft used in the movie “Top
Gun”. The enemy aircraft in the movie were 3 F-5Es and 1 F-5F supplied by the real
Topgun squadron and painted with a temporary semi-gloss black scheme. The aircraft had
the shark nose radome and leading edge extension modifications. These MiG-28 aircraft
were never clearly identified as belonging to a specific country although the markings are
suggestive of several potentially hostile countries.
