Pumpkin, you are right there is no ASHM, but RSAF does have a few Block 15 OCU F-16Bs. However I have only seen the IFF mods on the newer RSAF Block 52s and the RSAF Blk 52 F-16Ds would have the ASHM, so you may be right.

IIRC the 191st FIG out of Michigan flew F-16 ADFs and their color scheme included black/yellow checkerboards, this could be one of their birds.

I noticed the bird is parked at a "pacman", does RSAF use those ramp markings too?

I found the original photograph, and what I believe is another view of the same F-16B, parked in the same spot:

This is definitely an F-16B ADF with the 191st FIG.

Hi habu2,

I am impressed with your knowledge on the RSAF Vipers. You're right about the 15 OCUs. They're not equipped with the interogation capability.

And that was some neat job, finding the picture of the ADF Viper from another view! Google is my default search engine. But I must say that you have mastered the trick. :wink:

Yeah, we do have the pacman too! Didn't know the correct term is ramp marking. Thanks!

cheers, :D
