Variants F-16 Fighting Falcon F-16A/B, F-16C/D, F-16E/F, F-16IN, F-16IQ, F-16N, F-16V, QF-16 Fighter Jet. The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed now Lockheed Martin for the United States Air Force (USAF).
F-16 models are denoted by increasing block numbers to denote upgrades. The blocks cover both single- and two-seat versions. A variety of software, hardware, systems, weapons compatibility, and structural enhancements have been instituted over the years to gradually upgrade production models and retrofit delivered aircraft.
While many F-16s were produced according to these block designs, there have been many other variants with significant changes, usually due to modification programs. Other changes have resulted in role-specialization, such as the close air support and reconnaissance variants. Several models were also developed to test new technology. The F-16 design also inspired the design of other aircraft, which are considered derivatives. Older F-16s are being converted into QF-16 drone targets.
