Named "Operation Opera" it consisted of eight F-16As, each with two Mark-84 2,000 pound bombs, three external fuel tanks and two air-to-air missiles. The bombs were dropped and all aircraft returned safely. One of the F-16A Netz was No. 107 of 117 Squadron that would later become the most successful aircraft of this type when in 1982 it shot down 6.5 Syrian MiG jet fighters.Realistic panel lines

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine fighter aircraft built by General Dynamics that later became Lockheed Martin. Originally designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multi-role aircraft that can perform various kinds of missions. First flown on January 20, 1974, the F-16 entered operational service with the USAF in January of 1979. It has an internal M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon and multiple locations for mounting missiles, bombs and other mission equipment. Although it is no longer being purchased by the USAF, improved versions of the F-16 are still being produced for export customers. Over 4,500 F-16s have been built for the U.S. Air Force and the air forces of twenty-five other nations.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
