Now, Im not saying its the best interceptor or superiority fighter or anything like that. But for an all around fighter, it must be about the most capable out there. Fast, as agile as it gets and can carry a boat load of bombs.
And it still has an actual gun on it!! That fires bullets!
If I were a smalish country and wanted a little airforce for home security and protection, how could you ignore the F16? Relatively cheap by todays standards too.
Anybody else smitten with this plane like I am?
THe F/A-18 has a gun that fires bullets, is cheap, one of the best a-a and a-g a terrific fighter and has a longer range and can operate off a carrier, plus it has two engines
