IMO, F-16 is a great design that got to a real sweet spot for a fighter aircraft. It was small enough to be really nimble and agile while having a lot of power to zoom and boom. It also has aerodynamics very well matched to most combat speeds and altitudes. It got so close to what a human pilot could really use, that getting significantly better in BFM is not easy.
