Kinetic F-86F-40 Nato Sabre Question


Recommended Posts


There were two Mks of -86s in the Luftwaffe, Mk 5 and 6. West Germany received 75 Mk 5s in 1957-1958.  All were ex RCAF and were assigned to Waffenschule 10, training school to get pilots familiar with the type.  About 225 Mk 6 were delivered to West Germany and some were modified or retrofitted with slated wings to improve slow airspeed maneuverability. All Luftwaffe's Sabres were painted in NATO fashion of RAF colors: Dark Green, Dark Sea Gray and Medium Sea Gray. The only difference is that the second batch of -86s had the upper colors more or less switched, Gray instead of green and vice versa. 

I hope this help.
