About the F-16 Fighting Falcon
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a highly maneuverable fighter and an all-weather, multi-role aircraft that has proven itself in air superiority and air-to-ground support missions. Its mission is to provide a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapons system. In an air combat role, the F-16's maneuverability and range exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles, deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft and return.
