The North American F-86 Sabre, sometimes called the Sabrejet, is a jet fighter produced by North American Aviation. The Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept wing fighter that could counter the similarly-winged Soviet Mig 15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War (1950–1953). 

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan and Italy. Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadian Sabre added another 1,815 air frames, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre, had a production run of 112. The Sabre was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.
