Northrop RF-5E Tiger II 30085 8 Sqn. ROCAF
From Hobby Master
Code: HA3318

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.

In August 1997 the ROCAF began to receive their single-seat RF-5E’s to replace the aging 
RF-104G. Seven low-hour F-5E’s were converted by Singapore Aerospace and given the 
name “Tigergazer”. To accomplish this, existing radar and one M39 cannon were removed 
and the nose extended 8 inches. Six openings were added for the new cameras and ballast 
added between the engine exhausts to balance the additional weight of the new nose. RF-
5E 5501 serial 83-0085 and formerly F-5E 5315 was assigned to 401st TFW, 12th TRS 
“Tigergazer” at Hualien Airbase. On July 1, 1998 401st CW relocated to Hualien and 
Taoyuan Air Base Command was established at Taoyuan and took control of the 8th TFG. 
The 4th TRS was activated under the control of the 8th TFG and took over the RF-5Es at
