Available to NATO forces, the General Dynamics F-16C Block 52 is an American tactical air superiority fighter.

HistoryEdit

The General Dynamics F-16C Block 52 "Fighting Falcon" is a single-engine, single-seat Air Superiority Fighter. First delivered to the United States Air Force in 1991, the F-16C Block 52 features internal GPS/INS, and compatibility with new air-to-surface munitions, including the AGM-88 HARM, Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW), and GPS-guided JDAM bomb. It is powered by the Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-229 engine, offering more than 29,000 pounds of thrust in afterburner.

OverviewEdit

The F-16C Block 52 is an Air Superiority Fighter available to NATO decks. Although fairly expensive, the F-16C Block 52 has exceptional capabilities for its cost. With very good ECM (40%), a tight turning circle, four long-range Fire-and-Forget AIM-120 AMRAAM, and two short-range AIM-9M Sidewinder missiles, the F-16C Block 52 is dangerous foe, well suited to engage advanced enemy fighters, to intercept enemy strike platforms, or to attack enemy helicopters. The Fire-and-Forget capability of the AMRAAM allows the Block 52 to fire and break away, minimizing the threat of return-fire, and the powerful ECM carried helps to mitigate the threat even further. The chief drawback of the Block 52 is its cost, although at 160 points per aircraft, the Block 52 is not as expensive as top-of-the-line Warsaw Pact fighters, like the Su-27 and MiG-29 series, or the American F-15C Eagle.
