F-16C Hornet, © 1991-2019, The Fighter Collection & Eagle Dynamics, Inc.The General Dynamics F-16C ‘Viper’ is a high-performance, single-seat multirole combat aircraft that excels not only as an air superiority fighter, but also in the ground attack, precision bombing, SEAD and reconnaissance roles.

For air-to-air combat the F-16C is armed with AIM-9L/M/P/X Sidewinder missiles, AIM-120B/C AMRAAMs and an internal, six-barrel, M61A-1 20mm Gatling Gun firing 4-6,000 rounds per minute. An advanced airframe and fly-by-wire system mean the Viper can pull 9g, while the F110-GE-129 engine powers it to a maximum speed of more than Mach 2.
