is the backbone of IDF and its Air Force branch. General Dynamics /later Lockheed/ F-16 Viper is used widely by many foreign users and in large numbers, like Egypt, Greece, Turkey and others. However it was best utilized by Israel during the numerous conflicts in the area and its highly experienced Air Force personnel. In total IAF received 362 F-16 of various modifications, some /like the F-16I Sufa/ specifically tailored for the Israeli needs. To this date, Israel holds 47 aerial victories scored with F-16.

is the second single-seat variant to be introduced to Israel Air Force. To this day, Barak flies alongside other multi-role jet fighters like F-15I Ra’am and F-16I Sufa, both made exclusively for the IAF. This set features camouflage for F-16C from the IAF, which is one of a kind camouflage scheme used by Israel only. Originally, F-16 batch made for Iran was planned, however due to numerous political events, F-16A ended up in Israel. That was the country that made the jet truly famous, mostly thanx to many air-to-air victories and highly classified attack operation Opera. This mask set represents C variant of the F-16, later introduced to the IAF Inventory. Stars of David are included.
