1/72 Witty Wings RSAF F16C Fighting Falcon
My mission to collect all RSAF Aircraft Fleet from Witty Wings Brand already success when another F16C Fighting Falcon safely landed in my home yesterday. RSAF F16C is the dedicated interceptor RSAF to any aircraft intruder. Most of Malaysian and me also stated that RSAF F16C is the reason why RMAF equipped the first russian aircraft MIG29N.
The backbone of the RSAF is formed by the Block 52/52+ F-16 Fighting Falcons. These are armed with US-supplied AIM-120C AMRAAM missiles and LANTIRN targeting pods, laser guided munitions and conformal fuel tanks for long-range strike.
While Singapore initially bought as many as 70 F-16 planes, on 18 November 2004, it was announced that the RSAF would offer its remaining 7 F-16A/B's to the Royal Thai Air Force. It is believed that these early Block 15OCU aircraft were upgraded to "Falcon One" standard by ST Aerospace before the transfer and delivered in late 2005. In return, the RSAF was permitted to train at the Udon Royal Thai Air Force Base in north-east Thailand for a specified number of days each year. This would mean that the RSAF will operate only the Block 52/52+ model, as many as 62 F-16CJ/DJ planes.
