Northrop F-5E Tiger II from the Swiss Air Force "Patrouille Suisse" at the KeeBee Spottersday, Kleine-Brogel (Belgium)

The Patrouille Suisse is an aerobatic team of the Swiss Air Force. The Patrouille Suisse normally operates six Northrop F-5E Tiger II aircraft out of total of twelve F-5Es that are maintained in team colours. Since 1996 ten aircraft are able to accept one of the eight smoke generators that were made by RUAG. When fitted with a smoke generator, including the two 40 litres (11 US gal) bottles of diesel, the right gun of the F-5E is disabled. The teams F-5Es are also used for other purposes such as training and as target tugs flown by Target Squadron 12,
facilitated by their high visibility colouring.
