When the US Air Force requested a day fighter that could be used as a dive bomber or escort fighter it came up with the NA-140. The NA-140 became the F-86 Sabre Jet in 1949. This single seat, all weather, now night figher achieved a speed of over 700 mph with a range of 835 miles. Equipped with 24 (69.9mm) air to air rocket missiles this jet was used by the US, Australia, Italy and Japan. The F-86 saw extensive Korean War Duty.

North American F-86F Sabre

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a day-fighter/escort fighter/dive-bomber, the F-86 was first flown on October 1st, 1947. The Sabre's swept-wing "flying tail" configuration and a hydraulic flight-control system were some of its many firsts in technology and design that have now become standard for jet-powered aircraft. Armed with six 50 caliber machine guns, the F-86 saw extensive action in the Korean War, where it was often pitted against the MiG-15. The Sabre pilot had to be in visual contact and within gun range of the enemy in order to attempt a shoot-down, thereby making this aircraft the last true "dogfighter" in Air Force inventory.
