NATO -TIGERS

Within the Royal Netherlands Air Force there is one so-called 'Tiger"-squadron, no 313 squadron.

Intially the main task of this squadron was advanced training. The squadron marking was a bird of prey flying over an airstrip. When the Northop NF-5 was withdrawn from use in 1988 and 313 squadron received the General-Dynamics F-16, the task also changed and the squadron wanted to changed their squadron marking. In 1990 it was decided to choose the tiger.

Since that time 313 squadron RNlAF is a member of the NATO Tiger.
