Add to Wish List


This pack contains one Folland Gnat.

The Gnat was a light training and fighter jet which first flew in 1955. It saw service in the Indo/Pakistan conflicts of 1965 and 1971. It had particular success against the Canadair Sabre MK6 where it was able to use its small size and manoeuvrability to outfly what was considered the best dogfighting aircraft of its day. The Indian air force called the Gnat the Sabre Slayer.
