The United States entered the Korean War in 1950. This war would be the first war in which most the aircraft used would be jets. Furthermore, the use of on-board radar systems and g-suits to handle airspeed and maneuvers would be aeronautical firsts. The United States used a variety of jet fighters/bombers during the conflict, but eventually settled on the F-86 Sabre (pictured above-left). Though the Sabre was inferior in speed and rate of climb to its adversary the Mig 15 (pictured below-right), it did possess several features that enabled it to have an advantage. The F-86 had a better on-board radar system as well as better handling. Moreover, U.S. pilots were much more adept at handling their aircraft. Aircraft in the Korean War were armed with a variety of cannons and rockets. Though rockets were used in the Second World War, there use in the Korean War would become more prolific.
