AT-38B Talon

The AT-38B version of Northrop's Talon was used for Lead-In Fighter Training (LIFT), being cheaper to operate and easier to fly for students than frontline fighters. Aside from the "aggressor" style paint schemes, the AT-38Bs could be distinguished by their carriage of gun pods or SUU-20 dispensers on the centerline.
