The more I look at that F16 model Mike the more I realise its a absolute beauty. Better than some flyable ones I have seen.

As soon as I can produce them. Which means when I have the time. We currently have 3 aggressor models and 3 AETC training models. So just a few more to do for each and then they should be ready.

Probably the heaviest Viper to ever take flight, this F-16F model is toting four 2000 lb class precision guided munitions (a derivative of MBDA's/Hikim PGM-2000), along with a centerline external fuel tank and conformal fuel tanks. This is one reason the Desert Vipers are powered by Eneral Electric's F110-GE-132 engine and need all 32,500 pounds of thrust that it can generate.

Wow that looks really heavy. What is that fat chin pod on the starboard side?

By the way here is some more inspiration for the aggressor loadouts - Lockheed Martin’s AN/AAS-42 IRST

Leading theory is that it is an AN/AQX-14 datalink pod

Seeing stuff like this makes me wish I stayed with FS9.

Another USAF AETC Bk 42 training bird, this one carries an AMD pod on station 8 as well as an ACMI pod on station 9. The bright orange color on the AMD pod helps the pilots discern who is who in mock dogfights among aircraft of the same type.

Note that Mark has taken the time to add a pilot and maintainer name to the canopy rail and nose gear door.

Block 60 F's are complete, about 1/3 of the way throught the E Textures....

Hope Mike doesn't mind but I really like this pic, shows the 'Block 60 Slime Lights' and the screens (may darken screens a little).

Update....
Egypt isn't allowed AMRAAMs, so it uses Sparrows instead. These require a different pylon on stations 3 and 7 (same as the ADF pylon).
They also have Sniper targeting pods.
The wing orange panels also showed up problems with the flaps and forward slats texturing which have been fixed.
