FSX/P3D v3,v4 North American F-86H Sabre. The North American F86 Sabre was without question one of the greatest fighter aircraft of all time. Development of a purely fighter-bomber version of the Sabre was initiated by North American Aviation on March 16, 1951 as the F-86 H. After withdrawal from ANG service, F-86H aircraft with the lowest air time were turned over to the Navy. The Navy used them both as target drones and as MiG simulators for TOP GUN aggressor training. The F-86H had a similar size, shape, and performance as the MiG-17 fighter then being encountered over North Vietnam, and many a Navy F-4 pilot was "killed" by a F-86H Sabre during these mock battles.
