Northrop F-20 Tigershark: “Enter sky at own risk”.

The F-20 was the ultimate -a very appropriate adjective here- evolution of the F-5 Freedom Fighter/Tiger II. One of the best fighter never to see active service, with stunning performances and a lot of development potential. The F-20 suffered from the “unfair” competition of the F-16; its condition as a private venture product and…… well, no easy to sell an aircraft when two of its three prototypes were lost killing two superb test pilots.

A bit too modern to me, but what a sleek beast.
