Really ugly if you ask me, those CFT's. Nobody did in fact but I answered anyway.

I'd like that if the plane was marked as non-US plane, then there would be CFT option. Make it last item to be added (so not in the release) and I am quite happy.

CFT isnt something that easily install able. If its anything like the F15E CFT process, than it means its complex depot level modification, not something easily exchangeable like say removal of hard-points and o/r weapon racks.

besides as stated USAF doesn't use CFT's, and the foreign operators that do have these F16 with CFT's are also operating them with newer iteration of the AN/APG68 radar such as the V9 by 2007.

Very much this. My layman's understanding is that there's a lot of plumbing/electronic adaptation required to utilise CFTs. IOW it's something that's planned-in from the start rather than a simple bolt-on mod.

I'm sure =Panther= can confirm this, subject to OPSEC (of course).

I have never seen the inside of a Viper with CFTs, so I don't know plumbing nor the attach points. I just know that the USAF Viper has no plumbing to assist in CFT installation. IIRC (not 100%) I think the CFT feeds the Wings by means of gravity feed. There would need to be some sort of plumbing added or modified to allow that, and possibly structural modifications.

I'm fine with out the CFTs, though I am getting used to seeing them and would be cool to have extra fuel. Few questions if anybody knows:

1: are they permanently part of the plane or are they removable?

2 From what I read they don't do too much in terms of a speed penalty, and can they be jettisoned? guessing it would rip the tail off, but have to ask
