Description

GarageImage F-86F-35.jpg


The F-86F-35 Sabre is a Rank V premium American jet fighter with a battle rating of 8.0 (AB), 8.7 (RB), and 9.0 (SB). This aircraft was introduced in Update 1.85 "Supersonic".

General info

Flight Performance

The aircraft boasts of a decent speed compared to other counterparts, at least until the Shenyang F-5, MiG-17AS and Hunter FGA.9 were released as premium vehicles. This aircraft was one of the first Premium jets available for sale, therefore it is unable to carry air-to-air missiles or air-to-ground missiles either. Retaking on speed, this aircraft is quite fast in a straight line, but looses a lot of energy, and speed, when facing a turn. Therefore, if in a persecution, a precise shot with the M3 Browning (12.7 mm), can cause a real devastation in an enemy aircraft. However, these machine guns aren’t so powerful in jet age as 20mm cannons, so accurate and shots are perfect for this guns.

This Sabre is an aircraft with a very special camouflage, the one of the US Air Force Skyblazers, the USAF acrobatic team. The aircraft, then is great in manoeuvres at high speed, which makes it a good aircraft for air combat. You can use it as well if managing well the 12 HVAR. The only drawback to this manoeuvrability is that you loose quite a lot of speed in a turn. As well, the acceleration isn’t great and makes the climb rate inferior to the one of other premium jets or other aircraft in it’s B.R.

Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

F-86F-35 rookie102 001.jpg

Offensive armament

Main article: Browning M3 (12.7 mm)

The F-86F-35 is armed with:

  • 6 x 12.7 mm M3 Browning machine guns (300 RPG = 1,800 total)

Suspended armament

The F-86F-35 utilize external pylons to carry various configurations of:

  • None
  • 16 x HVAR rockets
  • 2 x 1,000 lb AN-M65A1 Fin M129 bombs

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Turns well at high speeds
  • 6 x M3 Browning machine guns, if aimed well, can wreak havoc on nearly any aircraft
  • Good dive characteristics
  • High top speed for its B.R.; can outrun the MiG-15
  • Decent acceleration

Cons:

F-86F-35 penthyn 001.png
  • Poor low speed handling characteristics, aggravated by sluggish acceleration
  • M3 machine gun high fire rates can quickly use up your ammo belts
  • Slower climb rate compared to the MiG-15
  • Tends to quickly bleed off airspeed in a sustained turn

History

The F-86 Sabre was designed by North American Aviation Company in the mid-late 1940s as an air superiority fighter, entering service in 1949 with the USAF. In 1950, it was deployed to Korea to combat the communist MiG-15s, and went on to score 560 kills to only 78 losses against the MiGs. Post-Korea, it went on to serve many other nations such as Pakistan, Taiwan, and Bolivia, the latter nation retiring its Sabres in 1994. Over 9,000 Sabres were built, including versions built in Canada and Australia, making the F-86 the most-produced Western fighter jet in military history.
