I'm currently working on a 3D model of the F16C block 52. Most of the required info I get from pictures available on the internet.
In many cases however I have no idea what some details on the pictures are about.

Can anyone please tell me what the cables are for, that start underneath the rear canopy just alongside the airco duct?
In some pictures here are none, somtimes only two and in some cases 5 cables rise from the fuselage and are led forward into the cockpit interior.

Are these cables specific to a certain block or on-board system?

Thanks for your help!
