1/72 F-86F Sabre
SUPER DECALS FOR 3 VERSIONS – COLOR INSTRUCTIONS SHEET
The single-engine jet fighter F-86 Sabre was developed by the American aircraft company North American in the late 1940s and became a symbol of post-war military aviation. The F-86 featured the adoption of the typical swept-wing, the large front air intake and the use of the General-Electric J47 jet engine. The fighter flight performance was impressive for the time and very different from the propeller-driven fighters. The Sabre was armed with six M3 12.7 mm. Browning machine guns installed in the nose. It was widely used by the U.S.A.F. and it played a key role during the Korean War where it could counter the Soviet fighter Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-15, in the first high-speed jet planes dogfights in the history. The F-86 proved to be extremely effective and a lot of American pilots earned the designation of “ace” during the Korean war with an high number of victories against the enemy planes.

Powered by a Maybach 6-cylinder petrol engine it was able to reach a speed of 55 km / h even on ‘off road’ terrain. Produced in huge numbers, it was mainly used to transport ‘Panzergrenadiers’, but during the war several versions were developed to meet differing operational requirements. The half-track Sd.Kfz. 251/8 ‘Krankenpanzerwagen’ was outfitted and deployed as an armored ambulance operating close to the frontline. It was capable of carrying up to eight seated casualties or four seated casualties and two stretcher cases, and also the necessary first aid and other medical equipment.
