Sorry if this has been covered before. I did a search and found some relevant discussions in the F-15I thread, but not what I'm looking for.

Has anyone done a comparison analysis between an F-16V configured with CFTs only, versus EFTs and CFTs + EFTs?

I'm wondering if drag coefficient in CFT-only configuration offsets the need for EFTs, with EFTs only bringing substantially-reduced returns.

PFD here looked at F-16C and F-16I (in a CFT configuration).


It's an old study I did using the HAF F-16C+ flight manual.
