The General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-enginemultirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force(USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weathermultirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to theLockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger withMartin Marietta.

The Fighting Falcon has key features including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility,side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wireflight control system helps to make it a nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcancannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper starfighter.

In addition to active duty U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserve Command, and Air National Guardunits, the aircraft is also used by the USAF aerial demonstration team, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and as an adversary/aggressor aircraft by the United States Navy. The F-16 has also been procured to serve in the air forces of 25 other nations.
