General Dynamics F-16 Fighting FalconEdit

The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,400 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still 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 Fighting Falcon is a dogfighter with numerous innovations including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system that makes it a highly nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and has 11 hardpoints for mounting weapons, and other mission equipment.

Voodoo Scuttlebutt Edit

"The F-16 Fighting Falcon may not be the best plane for all occasions. But say what you want; It's the quintessential fighter. The concept is simple: Take the biggest, simplest, most brutal engine you've got, then strap a minimal, stiletto-like airframe, a radar and a bunch of hardpoints for all occasions to it. Make it theoretically able to fly, and put a pilot at the front. If it doesn't want to stay in the air, use computers to make it. Then, you build four and a half thousand of them, and launch them at the enemy. When the dust has cleared, you should have at least reduced the distractions for your more specialized planes by a shitload." - Sebastian Isenwell
