The General Dynamics F-16 is a highly maneuverable, supersonic multi-role fighter that has proven itself not only in the air-to-air role, but air-to-ground attack as well.

The Israeli F-16I is based on the F-16D Block 52 model, but looks radically different from other F-16D's. It has the capability of carrying Conformal Fuel Tanks, enlarged dorsal spine, and numerous fairings and bulges for undisclosed equipment.
