Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon 83-1128 Close Air Support (CAS) VIPERS
From Hobby Master
CODE: HA3816
The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then 
merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January 
1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of 
sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 
25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as 
the “Viper” and will remain in USAF service until 2025.


An attempt to replace the A-10 Thunderbolt II with a modified version of the F-16 was started in 
the 1980’s. Seven Block F-16Cs were set aside and painted in a charcoal lizard scheme, 83-1128 
was one of these aircraft. The aircraft would be designated A-16 and would be a dedicated to 
CAS (Close Air Support) and BAI (Battlefield Air Interdiction). The A-16 was to be equipped with a 
30mm cannon and strengthened wing structures to accommodate 7.62 mm mini-pods or other 
anti-tank weapons. The 30 mm gun produced so much heat that it singed the interior components 
on the left side of the fuselage and the project ended.
