Eexcellent Question Unattended Bag. The F-16's genealogy and production history can be rather complex to put it nicely.
To my knowledge. Turkish F-16's, excepting maybe the first batch, are actually produced under license in Turkey, by TUSAS, so to be technical, the vast majority are TUSAS F-16C Block 30s/CG Night Falcons or CJs. the first batch, 8 F-16C Block 30s (so not the aircraft subtype pictured) were manufactured by General Dynamics in Texas. The rest were manufactured locally in Turkey. Similarly, the F-16s of the EPAF
nations in the F-16 program (Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Dennmark) built their aicrafft at either Fokker or SABCA, and as such, SABCA/Fokker F-16A/AM/B/BM Fighting Falcon is correct. In Dennmark, aircraft manufactured by both Fokker and SABCA were recieved, so a mix of manufacturers could be seen in a search for their aircraft, and would be correct. Where this could get tricky is that I know that several of the EPAF
nations actually took delivery of GD
built F-16A/Bs, which depending on the history of the airfrane, could make a difference on how it should be labeled (Dennmark too 7 es-USAF
F-16A's, Norway took 2 F-16B's from GD
). If you want to verify, F-16.net mainatins an excellent database of F-16 serials. Otherwise, I would trust the auto complete function when uploading (don't delete their data unless you have some sort of compelling reason to do so, and I've never encountered this, but I'd assume there is someone you should email to see about getting the issue fixed-Mods could you step in and answer that part?). Additional license production was undertaken by South Korea (by KAI) In addition, there was aa split between General Dynamics and TUSAS for the F-16's produced between TUSAS-both supplied aircraft to the EAF. There is also the Mitsubishi F-2, but thats not a real Viper...
Sorry for the long winded response-can you tell that I'm an F-16 nut? This is as much information as I remember off of the top of my head at 11:25 PM
. I hope it was of some help in answering your question.
