Part Six: CAC Sabre

The amazing final instalment in the Iconic Aviation Collection. Commemorate the iconic CAC Sabre. The CA-27 Sabre was a highly redesigned Australian version of the North American F-86. Featuring a more powerful Avon engine, altered fuselage and increased air intake, the CA-27 Sabre was used by 79 Squadron RAAF to maintain patrols and provide air cover at the major airbase in Ubon, Thailand. Drew Harrison's vibrant artwork Cobra Sabres captures the CAC Sabre decorated with a green cobra on the tail, an emblem briefly adopted by 79 Squadron during their time in Ubon. Explore the spectacular limited edition CAC Sabre collection and secure your piece of the collection now.

Cobra Sabres.

Australia's contribution was 79 Squadron RAAF. In May it was reformed and moved to the Royal Thai Air Force base at Ubon to provide area defence. Equipment was in the form of the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) CA-27 Sabre, a highly redesigned Australian version of the North American F-86.  In Thailand the Sabres were kept at constant readiness. With the escalation of hostilities in neighbouring Vietnam, Ubon became a major air base for F-4 Phantoms of the USAF. 79 Squadron maintained patrols during this time and were often on readiness to intercept returning Phantoms and provide air cover.   A stylised green cobra was briefly adopted as a tail marking on several of the CA-27 Sabre Mk.32 fighters including A94-988. Despite 79 Squadron never committing to combat the unit contributed greatly to Thailand's security. In August of 1968 the country's defence was assured and the unit were withdrawn and disbanded for a second time. It would later receive Battle Honours for the Ubon deployment of 1962 to 1968 and has since been reformed on two separate occasions including 1998 to the present day.
