This is coolbert:
A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll?
Was not even aware such a warplane existed. F-21. A joint venture of American and Indian concerns. A fourth generation multi-role combat-aircraft [MRCA] based on the original design of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Falcon the original aircraft over forty years old now!
"Meet the 'New' F-21 Fighter: An F-16 On Steroids (With F-22 and F-35 DNA)?"
"Is this the fighter India needs?" Thanks to the article by David Axe from The National Interest.
"Lockheed Martin in mid-February 2019 offered to sell India a new fighter the company calls the 'F-21.'"
"In fact, the F-21 is an F-16 that Lockheed has upgraded with new cockpit displays, conformal fuel tanks, a larger airframe spine that can accommodate additional electronics, fittings for towed radar decoys, a new infrared sensor and a refueling probe that's compatible with India's Russian-made aerial tankers."
FIGHTING FALCON A PROVEN WINNER AND F-21 TO BE EVEN MORE SO. FOURTH GENERATION PLUS!
The Indian Air Force for a period of decades has standardized on Soviet/Russian warplanes with mixed [?] results. MiG-21 for instance having a bad record of CRASHING!
Again, F-21 to be a JOINT venture of American and Indian concerns and probably to the advantage of everyone.
