Revealed: Here’s Why F-16 Is One Dangerous Jet

Here’s Why F-16 Is One Dangerous Jets

New technologies and advancements are keeping this plane flying into the future. Both America and its allies around the world use the F-16. In fact, upgraded variants make it a surprisingly powerful and affordable plane.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon bears an unusual distinction it is one of the only top jet fighters in the world to also be cost-efficient. This favorable bang-for-buck ratio has not been lost on air forces across the world the F-16 currently remains the most popular aircraft in modern military service: out of 4,500 produced, nearly 2,700 currently remain in service in around twenty-six countries. Needless to say, the cutting-edge fourth-generation fighter of the 1980s will remain with us for a good while longer.

The F-16 was born out of the conundrum experienced by the Air Force in the Vietnam War. Fast and heavy F-4 Phantom fighters had underperformed against the North Vietnamese Air Force, due to their immature long-range missile technology and lack of aptitude for tight maneuvering in dogfights.

The single-engine F-16 leveraged new design technologies to maximize kinematic performance. A powerful Pratt & Whitney F100 engine with the intake slung under the fuselage could generate an excellent thrust-to-weight ratio due to the overall lightness of the Falcon, propelling the F-16 to twice the speed of sound at high altitude. Pronounced strakes bulged out like the hood of a cobra from the fuselage to support the cropped delta wings, enabling very high roll rates.
