Egypt and Iraq only for c/d - they use AIM-7 instead.

Taiwan have AMRAAM and Venezuela likely doesnt - both have AB models really.

you can check out Sipri's trade registers to get some indication of AIM-120 sales to those countries (and others) at sipri.org.

Israeli F-16D Block 52+ (F-16I) probably do because they are often seen with them.

As for the older Block 30/40 difficult to back up whether they do as can only find photos of Derby.
