Some of the 335th Fighter Squadron’s F-86F-2s pictured at Kimpo Airbase in 1953. The F-2 Sabres encountered two major problems during their combat tests in Korea. The first problem was the reliability of the M39 cannons. The pilots who flew the F-2s fired a total of ~98,000 rounds of ammunition between January and April 1953. During this period they reported as many as 210 weapon jams. This malfunction rate was about twelve times greater than the rate reported with the M3 .50 “six pack.” The initial rate for the first 32,000 rounds fired was 3.4 jams per ever 1,000 rounds fired. Over time this decreased to 1.2 jams per ever 1,000 rounds fired for the last 14,000 fired. The second issue - something much more serious - was engine stalls. The M39s were prone to give off an excessive amount of propellant gases and this did not sit well with the Sabre’s engine compressor. Air Force engineers estimated that the cannons expelled four times the amount of gas that the six .50s did. In 363 sorties, pilots reported up to twenty compressor stalls; six of these occurred in combat. The problem was so bad that two of the eight F-2s fielded were lost as a result of compressor stalls. The problem had not occurred while the aircraft were tested in the U.S., at altitudes of 25,000 feet or less, but at heights ten thousand or more feet greater than those altitudes, it quickly became a serious issue. Pilots did what they could to curb the problem. Some welded shut doors that allowed the flow of air from the guns into the engine intake duct and drilled holes in the gun bay doors to help vent the gasses. A selector switch was also installed which allowed the pilot to fire just two of the guns at once rather than all four. This reduced the amount of gasses expelled. The solution came from North American Aviation, which designed a clip fitted in the gun panel port that broke up the gasses. All things considered the M39 cannons showed satisfactory results. The Air Force concluded that they didn’t provide the “desired degree of improvement over the M3.” But the USAF had committed itself, and though not perfect, the M39 would be the main armament on the next Sabre variant: the F-86H.

Footage of an F-86F-2 undergoing cannon testing likely at Eglin Air Force base in Florida, c. 1952. This was part of GunVal, a late-war program designed to improve the firepower of the Sabre. During World War II the M3 .50 caliber machine gun used in American aircraft proved very successful, but in Korea, despite its reliability, good rate of fire, and quantity, many pilots often complained that the weapon struggled to keep up with the quick pace of evolving aerial combat. The advent of jet aircraft saw dogfights unfold at higher altitudes; in Korea the norm was generally at 35,000 feet. At that altitude, the ammunition of the M3 .50 caliber, in particular the API (armor-piercing incendiary), lacked sufficient oxygen to burn properly, and thus caused less damage on contact. Jet airframes were also built more sturdy and rugged in order to endure higher speeds, making it harder for bullets to do damage. Many Sabre pilots complained about the amount of hits one needed to score in order to bring down a MiG. During World War II there were twice as many multiple-kills sorties as there were in Korea. 44% of claims were assessed as “destroyed” compared to 71% in Europe during the previous war. By mid-1951 USAF pilots and brass alike were pushing for better firepower. An Air Force report from January stated, “firepower on the F-86 is not sufficiently destructive”, and another from August mentioned, “...pilots universally would like a heavier caliber gun so that when a hit is made, a sure kill results.” Consequently, the Air Force made a request in March 1951 to begin trails with 20mm cannons, and thus project would come to be known as GunVal. In the post-WWII years the USAF developed the T-160 (later the M39) cannon based on a five-chamber, revolver-type gun designed by the Germans. The 20mm T-160 was obviously a much more powerful weapon than the M3 .50. It’s projectile was 2.5 times larger and it’s muzzle velocity was 15% greater, which meant it could fly farther, faster, and have a greater impact. There were, of course, drawbacks. Because the weapon was heavier and the projectiles larger, the USAF replaced the six .50s with only four 20mm cannons. [Continued ↓]

A-Nother passion of mine is Original Historic and Authentic Aviation, Maritime, and NASA desktop models off the desks of the companies that designed and engineered them. This is a Topping original c1950 F-86 Sabre Jet desktop model from the office of North American Aviation and it was produce at the period the F 86 was created. Made of cast resin lucite and other plastics. I found and picked this in NE Oklahoma at an estate auction of a rancher and pilot that had worked for North American Aviation in his youth. #usa #🇺🇸 #usaf #veterans #vet #pilots #pilotsofinstagram #aimhigh #f86 #f86sabre #jetage #aircraftdesign #sabrejet #aviation #historicaviation #fighterjet #fighterjets #jetfighters #desktopmodels #militaryaircraft #okie #oklahomies #okiepickers

FAST & FURIOUS Rich Sugden's beautifully-restored FJ-4B Fury on the ramp at NAF El Centro during the Navy Tailhook Legacy Flight Foundation's 2018 formation practice. Of note is that this Fury wears the markings of the Navy's Fleet Air Gunnery Unit, which was based at El Centro in the late 1950s, so catching it at El Centro with old hangar, control tower, and outbuildings in the background was an awesome opportunity. I'm typically not big on 'doctoring' images, but the modern firetrucks in the hangar in the background killed the vintage vibe I was going for, so I used the clone stamp tool in Photoshop CC to 'close' the hangar doors. Then I ran the image through Nik's Analog Efex plugin, and voila - an El Centro-marked Fury parked at El Centro and processed to look like a late-50s/early-60s shot. #fjfury #fj4b #northamericanaviation #f86. #sabre #navalaviation #tailhook #legacyflight @tailhook_flight #elcentro #nafelcentro #imperialvalley #vintage #nikanalogefexpro2 #analogefexpro2 #jet #fighterjet #warbird #aviation #aviationhistory #military #usnavy #avgeek #aircraft

F-86 Sabre. Over 9000 of these so called sabre jets were built in the fifties. It heralded the arrival of the jet dominated air force easily being the most produced jet amongst Nato forces at that time. #sabrejet #modelkit #modelairplane #f86 #f86sabre
