A pretty intense, 'friendly' knife fight on Youtube for anyone interested... It's a Higher Definition version apparently of a similar video from the same training sorites posted about a month ago. All jet noise, raw vid, no music.

Looks to be a semi-clean F-16, with 4 AAM rails only + the CFT. Hard to say if a centerline was mounted? It would be interesting too, to see a block 60s performance advantage over these 50/52+ if any at all - given the same loadout..

And who wouldn't want to see this same training footage - substituting a lot 1 F-35 for the F-16 - in this simulated training 1v1!? Just add a couple -9x hung under the wing!

I'm sure this particular vid could have revealed more detailed results of multiple training engagements that were actually engaged in more full length :)

And who wouldn't have wanted to have seen the actual HUD screen of each a/c in a separate box as part of the vid (to better judge each specific pilot, etc)!
