This amazing vintage tee pays homage to the Northrop F-20 Tigershark fighter jet. The plane was originally commissioned by President John F. Kennedy as an affordable option for the US Military to offer its allies through the Mutual Defense Assistance Act. It was a pared down version of an earlier Northrop airplane. The F-20's development was a part of the "FX" project which aimed to develop fighter jets for US allies to combat Soviet aircrafts. However, a key component was that these planes lacked the front-line tech that was only available in aircrafts used by the US Air Force. Only 3 F-20 Tigersharks were completed and a 4th started when President Ronald Reagan's administration ceased development because the F-20 was not much competition for the newer F-16 in the global market
