F-1

The Mitsubishi F1 attack aircraft, which is similar in configuration to the Jaguar, is the combat version of the T-2 trainer. The rear cockpit of the T-2 is faired over with the space used for additional fuel. Other modifications include the addition of two wing pylons and a fuselage pylon, and the 20mm Vulcan cannon of the T-2A armament trainer along with combat avionics. The F-1 is a capable attack aircraft though with relatively short range, and can be used in interception missions carrying the AIM-9 missile. A total of 77 aircraft were built.
