Pardon while I drool a little more over this part of the Viper...

And a little over this...

Because in the Viper world, this could be considered porn.

A solid sixteen reasons to consider F-16 I mean 21! :devil:

Btw, all CFT capable airframes should have stations 4/6 weaponized I think.

I assume you mean for A-A. They are weaponized for A-G.

Yeah. I meant for AAMs and the entire spectrum of a2g... like say can you attach there a JSOW or JASSM too? Long time ago Ive heard somewhere 4/6 are fuel only and that these stations actually lack the wiring neccessery to support the weapon usage and I quite believed it but then I stumbled on images like that:

Taken at Red Flag Alaska in 2o12. As pilots said taking off with four 2ooo pounds bombs is defo an experience that adds up to a "pucker factor" quite well ;)

The reference is for USAF F-16s mostly where only 3/7 was wired with a modern interface for jdam/wcmd/jsow / etc - other users may vary.


Even on there though 4/6 have never been fuel only so they should still be able to carry GP and LGBs same as that Polish F-16.

I suspect the fracas between India and Pakistan may signal the death knell for US fighters particularly the F-16...*cough* F-21.

I would agree if a "Pakistani" F-16 was indeed shot down??? They claim it wasn't.... :|

So far there is zero proof IAF downed anything but two light drones.

And F-21 is going to be equivalent to the Rafale version they purchased, so if anything it may move up an order if they were to panic.

The big wing of Agile Falcon IMHO would be a great selling point. Could even bridge LockMart involvement in AMCA and any potential FGPA replacement.

Too much work to re-wing it, not enough reward.
