I cannot imagine any of those countries have brought an F-5 to Nellis in well over a decade... if at all The cost, distance, and logistics are significant for them.

South American F-5's? Probably a few have participated... but that's ancient history (certainly over 10 years ago).

If you find out otherwise, certainly let us know.

Spanish F-5s hit 50 years service.

The F-5 flew for more than 170,000 hours and contributed to the training of over 1,000 fighter pilots.
The Spanish Air Force (Ejército del Aire) reached the historic milestone of 50 years of service of the F-5 Freedom Fighter on Nov. 12, 2020.

The F-5s, built under license from Northrop by Construcciones Aeronuticas SA (CASA), first arrived at Talavera la Real Air Base on November 12, 1970, where they were assigned to the then Escuela de Reactores (Jet School), now Ala 23 de Instrucción de Caza y Ataque (Fighter and Attack School).
