It’s pretty cool that they modified their Tigers with Virpil curved extensions.

Clearly these are Mig28s!

Is there a real MiG-28?

In real-life, all postwar MiG aircraft in military service have been odd-numbered, so the MiG-28 is a fictional designation . The actual aircraft used in the movie are U.S. Navy F-5s that were used as aggressor aircraft at TOPGUN.

Yeah it is a running gag referencing Top Gun, whenever we see an F-5. Because we are all nerds.

Ah gotcha. Been around the F5 a little bit so i knew something was amiss

The lack of black paint and black flying kit was a sure bet that those were not real MiG-28s.
