The General Dynamics F-16, known as the Fighting Falcon, is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter. Developed by General Dynamics in response to a requirement announced by the United States Air Force for an air superiority fighter, the F-16’s prototype emerged victorious in the competition after several redesigns and adaptations. The finalized design incorporated a frameless bubble-shaped canopy to enhance visibility, along with an ejection seat tilted 30 degrees to reduce g-forces on the operating pilots. The F-16’s agility was achieved through the use of the relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system, a pioneering technology at the time. With over 4,600 F-16 units and variants produced, the aircraft has evolved into a multi-role platform, with a significant number of military aircraft being procured from sources outside the United States.
