The F-16 was the most successful fighter of its generation. In early 1997 about 3600 had been delivered (its in use with over 17 air forces), and production was expected to exceed 4000. The F-16 began life as a research project for a very light fighter, optimized for dogfighting. The project looked promising enough to develop a real fighter from it, but common sense dictated that manoeuvrability is not the only requirement for a fighter, and the production F-16 is heavier and bigger than the original concept. Still, it is one of the best dogfighting aircraft. Typical for the F-16 are the wings of cropped delta configuration, blended with the fuselage, and with long forward wing extensions.
