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: C/D

The F-16C (single seat) and F-16D (two seat) variants entered production in 1984.
The first C/D version was the Block 25 with improved cockpit avionics and radar which added all-weather capability with beyond-visual-range (BVR) AIM-7 and AIM-120 air-air missiles.
Block 30/32, 40/42, and 50/52 were later C/D versions.
The F-16C/D had a unit cost of US$18.8 million (1998).
Operational cost per flight hour has been estimated at $7,000 to $22,470 or $24,000, depending on calculation method.
