Because its not true. F-16V blk.70/72 will be way better than blk.50/52. It will be almost like F-35.

 

Bases on what since no block 70/72 has been built yet, so we do not know its equipment setup? Also taking in consideration older blocks could be upgraded to same capabilities. Beside the new block 70/72 having no airframe hours which will equate to longer service life in theory.

When I was in Aviano AB Italy, there where a lot of Jackrabbits/hares in the base. Ever so often they will get in the runway and get hit by aircraft taking off or landing and make a mess of things. Anyway, I tell you that because I saw this F-16 with rabbit kills marking on the side and it made me laugh.

19:05- The 61st Fighter Squadron back then used the F-16C block 25, small mouth (obviously no Big mouth with PW engines) and F100-PW-220 engine.

Also, no GE engine at Luke AFB at the time. Only F100-PW-220 and Singapore 425th FS used the F100-PW-229.

At 38:50, that is the crash for 88-0154 I saw that happened. Same one they drop the wing tanks on top a pick up truck.

I wish the camera was on the right side of the pit, so we could better see the control stick and engine gauges. You see the MFL/PFL list at 20:36?

So here is just a random gee whiz question...

 

The only difference between a Block 50 and 52 off the assembly line was the engine. GE vs. Pratt. (Details are irrelevant to the question)

 

Supposedly they can swap engines at will. (Yes and a few sub components) The question is: Is there any evidence this has ever been done? Is there any evidence or stories of a Block 50 getting a Pratt engine or vice versa?

 

No reason for this question other than curiosity.

Block 50, I don't see why anyone would try.

 

Other blocks for testing, yes. At one point they even tried a J-79 on one A model.

I always see this referenced for F-16 - J79, T/W looks pitiful, surprised how many other fields are NA. Makes sense since as you say it was just one. Always heard USA almost sold them to Israel with J79
