The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) for the United States Air Force (USAF).
Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft.

Over 4,600 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976.
Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are being built for export customers.
In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.

The F-16 has also been procured to serve in the air forces of 25 other nations.

As of 2015, it is the world’s most numerous fixed-wing aircraft in military service.

Version: A/B

The F-16A (single seat) and F-16B (two seat) were initial production variants.
These variants include the Block 1, 5, 10 and 20 versions.
Block 15 was the first major change to the F-16 with larger horizontal stabilizers. It is the most numerous of all F-16 variants with 475 produced.

Many F-16A and B aircraft have been upgraded to the Mid-Life Upgrade (MLU) Block 20 standard, becoming functionally equivalent to mid-production C/D models.
