More than 4,000 F-16s have been produced,
in over 110 different versions. Highly versatile and exceptionally maneuverable,
the F-16 is the world’s most popular, most sought-after multirole fighter.
Nations are attracted to the proven affordability, performance, and
supportability of this aircraft.
The F-16 was a revolutionary fighter when
first introduced and has continuously evolved to meet global needs. Twenty-two
nations have chosen the world’s first fourth-generation fighter; 14 of those
nations have made subsequent purchases of new aircraft; and six have acquired
U.S. Air Force inventory aircraft through purchase or lease. Deliveries have
been made from five production lines.
