The Iranian Saeqeh is a modified F-5E. This 3-7368 was one of the three prototypes in the Iranian modification programme in which the F-5 received a v-shaped twin tail (why oh why?). This 3-7368 was first noted as Saeqeh in late 2008 as serial/construction number S110-003. The aircraft was then painted in a blue prototype color scheme, since September 2015 the aircraft was repainted in the standard F-5 colors and assigned to 23 TFS as an operational aircraft at Tabriz air base (Iran).
