Description Extended Information
 
Forces of Valor 85047 USAF General Dynamics F-16CJ Fighting Falcon Fighter - 79th Fighter Squadron, 20th Fighter Wing, Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina [Low-Vis Scheme] (1:72 Scale) "Obsolete weapons do not deter."
- British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

Even at the ripe old age of 20, the F-16 Falcon remains a fast and potent favorite among fighter pilots, and one of the best fighters in its class. Designed originally as a no-frills, single-engine "hot rod", the addition of improved radar and weaponry have made the Falcon a super, lightweight jet. Used mainly as a bomber, the Fighting Falcon can also turn-and-burn with unbridled fury when provoked. It is also one of the first operational fly-by-wire aircraft; its flight controls being electronically operated and computer controlled. A 20mm cannon, Maverick missiles, and laser-guided bombs make the F-16 a potent multi-role fighter. However, it's light weight, speed and agility make it the choice of the US Air Force's Thunderbirds aerobatic team.

Pictured here is a gorgeous 1:72 scale diecast replica of a USAF General Dynamics F-16CJ Fighting Falcon Fighter that was attached to the 79th Fighter Squadron, 20th Fighter Wing. Pre-order! Ship Date: August 2014.
