The F-16D Fighting Falcon is a two-seater training and combat version of a multi-role aircraft designed by the American General Dynamics company. The F-16s have been produced by the Lockheed Martin company since 1993. It is used by the air forces of several dozen countries around the world. The Fighting Falcon is a 4th generation fighter designed and put into mass production in the 1970s. The latest versions of the aircraft meet the requirements of generation 4.5 fighters. The F-16 aircraft have also repeatedly participated in combat operations as attack and fighter aircraft. They were used for the first time in combat by Israel on June 7, 1981, during the attack on the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq. The first foreign aircraft shot down by an F-16 was a Soviet-made Syrian MiG-21 fighter in 1981. The most extensive mass use of F-16 aircraft took place in 1991 during the Operation Desert Storm in Iraq. Approximately 249 of them took part in the action! Later, the F-16 fought in Pakistan, Afghanistan and took part in many other combat operations.
