   F-16 Fighting Falcon


• Largest multinational coproduction effort in history. Assembly lines have
operated in Fort Worth, Belgium, The Netherlands, Turkey, and Korea.

• Thirteen countries have participated in coproduction of the F-16 and
major components of the aircraft have been produced in several other

• Almost 4,000 F-16s have been delivered to 19 air forces around the
world. Fourteen of these countries have ordered additional F-16s.

• First flight of full-scale development aircraft 8 Dec. 1976.

     F-16 Fighting Falcon

• Maneuverability and combat radius exceed that of all potential threat fighter

• Locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low flying aircraft in radar
ground clutter.

• Less than 1/2 the weight of the F-14, less than 1/4 the cost of the F-15.

• With a full load of internal fuel and air-to-air missiles, the F-16 can withstand up
to nine G's -- which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.

• Forebody strakes increases lift and directional control at higher angles of attack.
A uniquely fixed inlet , with no moving parts, provides smooth airflow to the engine
at extreme angles of attack.

• Automatic leading-edge flap control provides optimum maneuvering in all

                          Features (continued)

• The F-16’s fly-by-wire system has electric flight controls that, combined with an
angle of attacking limiter, allow edge-of-the-envelope precision maneuvering
without worry of overstress or departure from controlled flight.

• The F-16’s single vertical tail helps provide good directional stability at high
angle of attack. The aircraft unique wing body cross section is aerodynamically
and volumetrically efficient.

•The F-16 can carry up to 21,550 pounds of weapons, ECM and sensor pods,
and external fuel tanks on 11 store stations.

• The airframe is designed for 8,000 hours of operation (more than 26 years of
service at 25 flight hours/month) without a depot-level inspection or overhaul.

      F16 SWF

In 1976, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) awarded
funds to General Dynamics, Rockwell and Grumman under the Forward-Swept
Wing(FSW) Program. The final design submitted to DARPA used the landing
gear and most fuselage components of the traditional F-16, yet it had a slightly
lengthened and strengthened fuselage to allow the forward-swept wing to be
attached, since the new wing was slightly larger than the traditional wing. The
SFW/F-16 never left the drawing board and was rejected by DARPA in January
1981 in favor of the Grumman 712 (an F-5/F-20 derivative), later desiganted
the X-29A

                             F-16 XL
In February of 1980,
General Dynamics made
a proposal for a Fighting
Falcon version with a
radically-modified wing
shape, which was
originally proposed for
use on supersonic
airliners. The project was
known as SCAMP
(Supersonic Cruise and
Maneuvering Program)
and later as F-16XL

F-16XL Laminar Flow
  Research Aircraft

An F-16XL aircraft is being
used by the NASA Dryden
Flight Research Center,
Edwards, CA, in a program to
help improve laminar airflow
on aircraft flying at
sustained supersonic speeds.
It is the first program to look at
laminar flow on swept wings
at speeds faster than sound.
