I know that Pakistani AF,ROKAF and ROCAF (Taiwan) did some hard fighting with their F-86.Did any other air force (aside of USAF) had to used them in combat?Would be interesting to know.

Yes, I have my "special recipe" for a nice aluminum/metal effect.

Butelczynski -

No. 2 Squadron, SAAF, replaced their F-51 Mustangs with Sabrejets in February 1953. They operated in the ground attack role and lost four F-86s to hostile fire before the end of the Korean War.

Kacper's SAAF model is in the markings of one of the aircraft flown by No. 2 Squadron during the Korean War.

Since Butelczynski brought it up, here's some PAF Sabrejet history. I'm not as good as Don but I've got a bit.

Indo-Pak War of '65:

In '54, Pakistan began receiving their order of a 120 F-86F Sabres. It was then operated by nine PAF squadrons. All throughout the 22-day conflict in 1965, the Sabrejet became PAF's top fighter, even after it had fallen in the world stage due to the development of supersonic jets. However, the F-86 had many technological advances that gave the PAF an edge in the war. This lead to the PAF being able to shoot down 15 IAF jets in air-to-air combat, comprising nine Hunters, four Vampires and two Gnats. The F-86s had the advantage of being armed with AIM-9B/GAR-8 Sidewinder missiles whereas none of its Indian adversaries had this capability. The top Pakistani ace of the conflict was Squadron Leader Muhammad Mahmood Alam, who ended the conflict claiming nine confirmed and two damaged aircraft.

The Sabrejet also proved useful as an air-to-ground weapon, razing entire bases to the ground and destroying almost 40 aircraft on the ground

Indo-Pak War of '71:

The Sabrejet was once again the potent aircraft for the PAF, with more Canadair Sabres recieved from ex-Luftwaffe Iranian stocks. As the war began, the PAF had eight squadrons of the F86, as well as Mirages. However, the Sabre faced the brunt of the work throughout the war.

Throughout the war, they did well, with claims of about 31 IAF planes being shot down in air-to-air combat, including Hunters, SU-7s, MIG 21s, and Gnats. As the war ended though, the PAF started to phase out the Sabrejets for the Chinese F-6, due to greater maneuverability offered.

I suspect Aleem may be Don's secret protege! Great info on the PAF Sabres.

I think the SAAF one gets my vote. Would make a good addition to a Korean War theme build.
