General Dynamics F-16A/B Fighting Falcon for Philippines

Last revised September 23, 2015


The Philippine Air Force has expressed an interest in acquiring second-hand F-16s from the USA. These would probably be from Block 25 or 30, upgraded to either Block 50 or 52 standards. The Beijing government strongly opposes this sale, and had tried to pressure Lockheed Martin against the sale.
