First 2 F16I "Sufa"("storm") Fighters/Bombers arrived at an IAF airbase today. The F16I features a new engine, better avionics, new EW systems, better range, and other improvements over the F16 A/B/C/D serving with the IAF.

Looks pretty slick, that F-16 is sure one old dog for learning new tricks, isn't it? (clever turn of phrase there, huh? )

It is an old dog, but it learns well!
The Electronics and EW are mostly Israeli developed i think, while the fuselagh and engine are USA.
