Abstract
The F-5 family of tactical fighters is presently being utilized by 20 countries throughout the world as lightweight, highly maneuverable fighters. In many cases, these user countries must have the capability of performing multiple missions, including reconnaissance with the same aircraft without any appreciable penalty in performance, maintainability and cost. The purpose of this paper is to present design development information on reconnaissance capabilities of the F-5 family of tactical aircraft. Comments are included on external recon pod versus internal recon installations and their effect on the F-5 aircraft with its very slender fuselage and small cross sectional area.
