The F-86 Sabre is a fighter jet of the United States military.


Despite the Sabre's technological inferiority to the Chimera's fighter aircraft, Sabre pilots are more talented and skillful in aerial combat than the average Chimeran pilot.[1] Proof of this can be seen on a parked Sabre's nose art in a hangar near the end of Station Igloo, showing more than a dozen kills.


Resistance 2[]

F-86 Sabres attacking Goliaths.

F-86 Sabres played a role in covering ground assaults and neutralizing Chimeran fighters. They are first seen in Station Igloo, where they are fending off Chimeran forces supported by Goliaths. As Nathan Hale and Richard Blake try to destroy a Goliath, a small Sabre squadron provided a distraction by attracting the machine's attention and allowing Hale to damage one of the Goliath's rear exhaust ports.

In Chicago, a Sabre squadron attempted to clear an air corridor for the Sentinels, but contact was lost with them. It is assumed they were shot down by Stalkers and Chimeran anti-aircraft guns. Another Sabre squadron attempted to destroy a placement of Hellfire Turrets which are preventing Hale and Black Ops forces from advancing, but was briefly called off after Chimeran Drones prevented the human advance. After Hale and his forces destroyed the Drones, the Sabre squadron then later return and destroy the Hellfire Turrets.

During the assault on the Holar Tower, Sabres can be seen leading the way for SRPA VTOLs, and presumably wiping out a few Chimeran troops and machinery before the VTOLs deployed their soldiers. However, the Sabres' efforts failed as most of the SRPA squads were later nearly devastated by the Chimera.

Resistance: Burning Skies[]

F-86 Sabres are seen on the first day of the Chimeran invasion of New York City. In the Staten Island a Sabre shot down a Chimeran Dropship where Tom Riley and Ellie Martinez, along with the Minutemen were fighting the Chimera on the streets. Sabres also participated in dogfights against Chimeran fighters and later bombing the George Washington Bridge to preventing the Chimera on foot from crossing.
