Mig-16    Both Miggy and Vipery.    The combination works well.  :)

What if during the thawing of relations in the '70s/'80s, the USA provided F-16s ( maybe the J79 version) to the  Chinese?

I had played with mixing and matching an F-16 and MiG-29 a while back.

PRC or ROC?  The F-16/79 was offered to the ROC by the Carter administration.  I could see the PRC buying F-16s that could be re-engined with their license-built afterburning Spey engines.

Has anyone tried to model the F-16 with APG-65 radar from the F/A-18:

At first glance the 'Super F-16' has a very MiG-29 look to it.

I knew that Super F-16 reminded me of something. Went digging and found it. Built by "Desertpilot" for the What-If GB on ARC a couple of years back. The F-2S Viper II!



HERE'S the in-progress thread. I don't think he ever finished it, though.
Hmmm, I've got soo many Hasegawa 1/72 F-2s.... Hmmm....

Has anyone tried to model the F-16 with APG-65 radar from the F/A-18:




The nose, the mouth,.... the resemblance is uncanny!  ;D
Okay, enough jokes at the expense of that poor Viper.
Cheers,
Moritz

If Tienanmen Incident didn't happen, PLAAF F-16 sure could.

Carter would never sell anything that's an improvement over the F-5E/F and F-104G to Taiwan although GD was definitely enthusiastic about a ROCAF F-16/79 deal.
