    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
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

      Damn Sam! What a beauty :wub
      Where can we find out about her measurements...I mean stats....I mean, you know what I mean:doh!
      Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

        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.

                          No, that was a nick given to the , UAE's F-16.60's. The F-16I is a Block 52.

                          No, but they do add weight. 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.

                              ...

                              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. :)
