Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon
The F-16 is a single-engine, very maneuverable, supersonic, multi-role tactical fighter aircraft.
The F-16 was designed to be a cost-effective combat "workhorse" that can perform various kinds of missions and maintain around-the-clock readiness.
It is much smaller and lighter than its predecessors, but uses advanced aerodynamics and avionics, including the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire (RSS/FBW) flight control system, to achieve enhanced maneuver performance.
Highly nimble, the F-16 can pull 9-g maneuvers and can reach a maximum speed of over Mach 2.
