Operations on the F-16 started in the course of 2015. The transition to the F-16 for this squadron will mean a considerable leap in technology since they were used to fly with the vintage A-7 Corsair II. The main tasks of the squadron will remain as before, multirole. The squadron will fly the most advanced block within the HAF and even within other NATO forces. Since F-16 history of 336 Mira has just started, more info will become available over the coming years.
