It looks like a blinged out copy of the T38's they fly out at Sheppard.

If they are saying this is a deterrent to US fighters or surface ships they would have a problem. An F22 could shoot them down from 100 Miles. I think they are probably more for use against the local tribesmen or super tankers in the Gulf of Arabia or civilians in Yemen.

Why did they put a Bullseye target over the fuselage?

In my humble (LOL!) opinion, if they had copied the F-5G, aka F-20 Tigershark, I would be worried. A non-radar, gun only F-5G would be a hand full for any modern fighter.

Large numbers of cheap, powerful, reliable aircraft is a hard combination to over come.

This.

Defense strategists have to decide which path to take...high tech, expensive, aircraft with huge capabilities...or, cheaper, agile, fighters that you can mass produce.

The T-38 and F-5 are not the same aircraft. The t-38 is a twin engine trainer capable of exceeding the speed of sound. I have 120 hours in it.

The F-5 has, iirc, a single engine. It is designed as a combat aircraft. It was used to simulate enemy fighters at combat tactics schools.

The T-38 is a 2 seater, the F-5 a single seater.

The USAF Thunderbirds flew T-38s.

Correct, but it's the same airframe.
