CAC Sabre Airplane Models

Explore our collection of diecast models of the CAC Sabre - Precision Crafted, Historically Significant, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The CAC Sabre, produced by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of Australia, was a modified version of the North American F-86 Sabre jet fighter. Tailored to meet specific Australian requirements, it was a notable aircraft in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) during the Cold War era.

Featuring an Avon turbojet engine and redesigned fuselage to accommodate this more powerful engine, the CAC Sabre was distinct from its American counterpart, offering enhanced performance characteristics. It was equipped with advanced avionics for its time and armed with two 30mm Aden cannons, providing substantial firepower. The CAC Sabre saw action in the Malayan Emergency and was later used for training and air defense roles within the RAAF. Its development, operational history, and significance in Australian military aviation make the CAC Sabre a subject of great interest for aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, particularly those interested in the adaptations of jet fighters for specific regional requirements and the history of military aviation in Australia.
