^Nice. Why doesn't the US use them in some sort of scouting capacity?

USMC uses these super cool dirt bikes that can run on a bunch of different fuels IIRC, but I can't remember if they were made by Honda or not. Honda just pops into my mind when I think of them.

I remember reading about those a while back, but I didn't realize they were actually in service yet. I thought they were still in the testing phase.

Other info I read implied that it was delivered to the USMC in 2005.

Some data about Polish F-16's

Quote:
Poland ordered a total of 48 F-16C/D Block 52 aircraft, thus becoming the first former WarPac member to operate the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
Equiped with JHMCS and Sniper ER pods, and aremd with AIM-9X, AIM-120C, JSOW and JDAM, the Polish F-16s will be the most advanced in NATO.

Engines & Avionics

The new Polish F-16 Block 52 aircraft will be powered by the Pratt and Whitney F-100-229 engine. The aircraft will be fitted with the latest avionics available, including the APG-68(V)9 radar which provides high-resolution ground imaging, enabling day/night all-weather, precision weapons delivery and the ALQ-211(V)4 electronic warfare suite which will ensure that the aircraft possesses an unequalled countermeasures system.
Additionally, the multi-role fighter developed for Poland is equipped with a helmet-mounted cueing system used for directing precision guided munitions and off-boresight missiles as well as for increasing pilot situational awareness. The aircraft is designed to be fully interoperable with NATO and European Union missions.

Armament

Furthermore the deal also includes a major weapons package, including the AIM-9X Sidewinder and the AIM-120C AMRAAM missile, as well as GPS-guided Joint Stand-Off Weapon (JSOW-C) and Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) bombs for use in day/night and adverse weather conditions. The aircraft are fully compatible with the latest high-tech targeting and navigation sensors and reconnaissance platforms.

Sniper Extended Range pod

The Polish F-16s will be equiped with the Sniper Extended Range pod, which is an advanced targeting pod designed with an infrared pointer, laser, day TV, forward looking infrared, laser spot tracker and advanced algorithms. The pod delivers superior tracking performance and reliability.

Goodrich DB-110 airborne reconnaissance system

Poland's Ministry of National Defense has selected Goodrich Corporation's DB-110 airborne reconnaissance system for use on F-16 fighters.
The DB-110 digital, real-time, tactical reconnaissance system allows pilots to capture images day or night using electro-optical sensor technology.The camera is enclosed in a 19ft (6m) pod mounted on the underside of an aircraft. Images are fed in real time into a ground station. The camera itself can be easily directed via receiver units situated within the pod to focus in on a particular area.
Imagery is viewed on the F-16's cockpit video display, enabling the navigator to verify targets and conduct tasks such as battle damage assessment. The Polish F-16s will be the first Fighting Falcons to be outfitted with this technology.
