F-16F Block 60
The first of the advanced block 60 F-16s, specifically built for the United Arab Emirates Air Force. The aircraft features Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFTs), and a dorsal spine with a completely different set of avionics than a 'standard' F-16 making it the most advanced F-16 type developed so far.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Candyman"

While in Berlin for a tactics team conference, we visited a strip club called Mon Cheri, named after the chocolate-covered cherry candy. A stripper hid a piece of the candy in a special place, which someone had to find without using hands. I was coerced to find the candy or be without a callsign for the next three months.
