F-86 Sabre Fighter-Bomber Units over Korea: Frontline Color 1by Warren Thompson

However, these "mud-moving" Sabres sported impressive capabilities: they could carry two 1,000-pound bombs, two 120-gallon external fuel tanks, and 1,800 rounds of .50-caliber ammunition to any point in North Korea. And unlike other Western aircraft, fighter-bomber Sabres could handle the MiG-15 threat without a dedicated fighter escort.
