F-5GN Sea Tiger (What if)
*****************************************************
This mod is made for SF2.

I. History (fiction)

In 1969 there were decisive elections in West Germany. In reality, the Social Democrats won.
A new foreign policy followed and a period of reduction of tensions between East and West.
WHAT IF, the other side had won?
What if the conservatives had won and Franz Joseph Strauß (an old bavarian Commie eater) would have become Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany?
And so it starts.
In 1969 Strauß was elected as Chancellor. A period of rising tensions between East and West
 started. To protect the sea lanes between Europe and America the west german parliament Bundestag decided to build up a west german carrier force consisting of 3 carriers.
The american gouvernment was pleased and offered to sell 3 carriers of the Essex class (subclass Ticonderoga).
The first ship which was handed over was CV-34 Oriskany in 1969. Renamed in R-22 Theodor Heuss it was core of the first west german carrier group. 1973 CV-38 Shangri-La became R-23 Heinrich Lübke (later renamed in Walter Scheel) and two years later CV-45 Valley Forge became R-24 Gustav Heinemann.
The americans offered A-4 Skyhawk and F-8 Crusader as planes for the carrier group. The Bundesmarine accepted the A-4, but rejected the Crusader, because the Bundesmarine wanted a more multi role capable plane, not only a pure fighter.
At this moment Northrop entered the competition and offered a navalised version of the brand new F-5E Tiger. Under the designation F-5GN (German Navy) it should be produced in America and Germany. The west german government accepted the offer and the serial production of the F-5GN started. During flight tests on the way the US Marines decided, that it would be a good idea to replace their old F-8 Crusaders with F-5GN planes. So the F-5GN became a Marine plane.
Later, when the Marines retired their attack carriers the surviving F-5GN were transfered to Top Gun school.
The F-5GN stayed in west german service till 1995. Then it was replaced by F-31 Mustang II.

      1973 the government of South Vietnam demanded more F-5E Tigers to fight the communist forces. Because there was a shortage of F-5E the american leaders decided to send the first batch, which was intended for the Marines, to the Republic of Vietnam. So 40 F-5GN were handed over.
      On May 1st 1975 Saigon was taken by the communist forces. the war was over. 36 surviving F-5GN were captured by the north vietnamese. To pay war depts  Vietnam handed all 36 F-5GN and 12 F-5E to the soviets.
      In the USSR the planes were tested very hard. Finaly the decision was made to use the F-5GN in the Soviet Navy. The canceled carrier project Oriol was revitalized and in 1976 the first soviet carrier squadron was formed. The soviets modified only the RWR and the air to air missiles. Air to ground weapons were taken from captured stores in Vietnam.
      The US Navy realized very soon that the soviets had a new plane. Analysts believed, that the soviets copied the F-5GN and gave her the designation MiG-28.
      The F-5GN alias MiG-28 had only a short service time in the Soviet Navy.
      1982 the F-5GN was withdrawn from service. The reason was missing spare parts.
      Afterwards the planes were sold to Iran.
