The PAF received 37 F-5A/B in 1966. The F-5A/Bs were used by the Blue Diamonds Aerobatic team, underwent an upgrade which equipped it with surplus AN/APQ-153 with significant overhaul at the end of the 1970s to stretch their service life another 15 years. In 2011, the Philippines decommissioned its remaining F-5A/B fleet, including those received from Taiwan and South Korea.
