The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact multirole fighter aircraft. It is very easy to use and has been tested in combat-air and air-ground attack. Provides a relatively low cost, high performance weapon system for U.S. and allied nations.

In an air combat role, the F-16's maneuverability and combat radius (distance it can fly to enter air combat, stay, fight and return) exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. You can locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low-altitude aircraft in radar ground clutter. In an air-ground role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles (860 kilometers), deliver its weapons accurately, defend against enemy aircraft and return to your starting point. Capacity all the time to dictate precisely what ammunition in non-visual bombing conditions.

Basically, a block is a block milestone.The number increases each time a production configuration for the F-16 has been established. Not all F-16 aircraft within a given block are the same. They are divided into a number of block subsets called miniblocks. These sub-block sets are denoted by capital letters following the block number (Block 15S, for example).
