And t has one main difference pver Snipe's "beloved" Lawn Darts. Those bumps over the wing on both sides of the plane are extra gas tanks. F-16I's have MUCH more legs than normal F-16's

Well, you can try the IAF website if you or your computer read Hebrew. Or just try Janes, FAS, etc...

Nice looking bird. I took a visit to the IAF official website, thank god it has an english option :D . Looks like they got some pretty interesting ideas and weapon systems floating about.

Are the things sticking out the sides fuel tanks?

CFTs. I think Block 50s have them too. Actually, are -16Is Block 50s?

I might be wrong about this, but these are now F-16Us right?

Don't CFT's kill aerodynamics and also provide a nice juicy explosive target?

I think its -15s, but it might be -16s that I heard this about; apparently CFTs actually improve aerodynamics for some predictably strange reason. Improves airflow over wing root or something. Looking at those things, I dont really believe it. They look horrible.

well they also increase F-16's range. So now they can go deeper into enemy territory and attack.

The CFT's on the F-15's increases pitch response.

As far as a juicy target, well the wings are full of fuel anyway, and if you catch a missile, it's not a good day no matter how the AC is fitted out. The CFT's increase the range, which was one of the main requirements for the Israelis- they wanted a plane that had an equivalent range to their F-15I's.

Is there anybody loving mig 29?

F-16I's have longer legs compared to 'normal' F-16's? lol Block 60's have CFT's also, and they're normal F-16's. ;) American F-16's don't have CFT's, since we have such a huge refueling capability, so it's not really needed.


"Is there anybody loving mig 29?"

I don't know, but I'd personally rather have an F-16, with the possibility of upgrading it to Block 60. :)
