Post FAB F-5EM - The F-5 Fighter Family in the 4th generation?

The Brazilian Modernization program of the F-5E Squadrons has come to end and 28 aircrafts have been already delivered to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB). The modernization transformed the old jet in a Modern Aircraft cacable of multi-missions and able to using a vast variety of equipments and weapons. Many people thinks that the new F-5EM operated by the FAB is the same of the old F-5E, but is not. In the F-5EM, everthing is from 4th genereation tecnology. Check some images:

This is the normal F-5 Cockpit:


This is the F-5EM one:


Currently, we have other 35 old F-5E/F wich still needs to get the new tecnology, In the total of almost 60 aircrafts currently in service.

Employing 4th generation tecnology, the new cockpit gets a easy job to the pilot and it have been designed to work fully operative in both day and night, in all of the wheater conditions, in any kind of operations theaters. The configuration allows total control of the systems by the Sticks (HOTAS). Two computers of high performance e and one integrated navigation system INS/GPS are also included. 3 multi-functions screens e and a HUD type visor (Who projects the informations in the front of the pilot) Gets the F-5EM in the best of what exists in the man-machine interface. All of the visualization and ilumination systems of the F-5EM where projected for the Night-Vision Googles use.

The F-5EM also incorporates system of viewfinder of aiming in the helmet, type DASH, enlace of data, system of planning of mission and capacity for virtual training in flight. The aircraft is qualified with the armament existing standard already in the FAB, as the missiles air-air of short reach MAA-1 Piranha and the Israeli Phyton 3, as well as external bombs and cocoons. Also the systems of armament (conventional and intelligent) used in the huntings of new generation are available, including the capacity to use missiles BRV (Beyond Visual Reach) and guided bombs the laser.

(Picture - The GPB System Integrated on the new F-5EM

Features of the new F-5EM:
- Substitution of the analogical counters for colored liquid crystal screens of multiple functions (MFCD - concept glass cockpit).
- technology HOTAS (Hands On Throttle And Stick) where all the main commands are located in the stick and manete of power.
- HUD (Head-Up Display) viewfinder to the level of the eyes so that the pilot can verify all the main ones information of the panel without having to deviate the look for low.
- Total compatibility with the eyeglasses of nocturnal vision NVG (Night Vision Goggles)
- Helmets with system of aiming HMD (Helmet-Mounted Display) type DASH of the Elbit
- RWR (Radar Warning Receiver) of the Elisra, Radar of acknowledgment of the tail for self-defense.
- Digital Radios V/UHF Rohde & Schwartz M3AR (Series 6000), that they can receive/to transmit communications of voice and data with electronic protection, as encriptografia, jump and compression of frequencies, thus allowing the transference of data between aircraft F-5M, the Embraer anticipated R-99 of air-alarm or the land controls.
- Doppler Radar TO WEAVE Grifo-F with diverse ways of air-air operation, air-ground and anti-ship, with great resistance the electronic or mechanical blockades and deceptions. Its reach is of 56 km for contacts in same altitude, 37 km for contacts flying below (Lock down-shoot down) and of 110-148 km stops maritime targets. - Modern navigation systems, including a system inercial/GPS of the Rockwell model H-764G laser e one another GPS of backup.


The first modernized F-5M was delivers in the day 21/setembro/2005 1º/14º GAv Group of Aviation - " Pampa" squadron; , of the Air base of Canoes, RS. The project foresees the delivery of the too much aircraft, in a cadence of two aircraft for month.

I want to see a re-run of Topgun featuring those planes. Viper would love them I'm sure.
