General Dynamics F-16A/B Block 15 Fighting Falcon

Last revised September 24, 2015


The first important changes to the F-16A/B were introduced on Block 15 (also known as MSIP Stage I).

During model tests of the YF-16, a problem was identified involving "deep stall" conditions at high angles of attack. In a deep stall situation, the turbulent wake of the stalled main wing "blankets" the horizontal stabilizer, rendering the elevators ineffective and preventing the aircraft from recovering from the stall. The issue had been raised during development, but had orginally been discounted because the Langley Research Center had revealed a potential problem but no other laboratory had been able to duplicate it. Later flight testing of the FSD aircraft demonstrated that there really was a problem.

Among these changes were the introduction of the extended horizontal stabilator (the so-called "big tail") with an increase in area of 25 percent, which provided better stability and more authority for out-of-control situations. It changes lift-off rotation speeds and allows stable flight at higher angles of attack. In addition, a manual override switch was provided to disable the horizontal stablizer flight limiter, which allowed the pilot to regain control and recover from a stall. The larger horizontal tail also improved stability and permitted faster takeoff rotation. These changes were later retrofitted to earlier aircraft.

Block 15 aircraft also have two dogtooth radar warning antennae parallel to each other underneath the radome. The blade antenna underneath the air intake was deleted.

The AN/APG-66 radar on the Block 15 F-16A/B was provided with an early version of a track-while-scan mode for greater air defense capability. They also have "Have Quick I" secure UHF voice radios.

The Block 15 F-16A/Bs were the last to be delivered with monochrome CRTs on the control panel, although their terminals were later upgraded for color.

Additional structural strengthening was added to allow an extra 1000 pounds of ordnance to be carried on the underwing points.

A program to upgrade systems and avionics of all Block 1/5 F-16A/Bs, code named Pacer Loft I was announced in 1982. A second Pacer Loft upgrade program was started in December of 1983.

There were 457 Block 15 F-16A/Bs built in America, 410 of them single-seaters and 47 of them two-seaters. They were ordered over fiscal years 1980-83 and delivered between November 1981 and March 1985. Also included in the batch were 40 aircraft for Egypt, 40 for Pakistan, 24 for Venezuela, and a batch of 60 add-on aircraft for the Netherlands. >[? The Block 15 OCU (Operational Capability Upgrade) refers to F-16A/Bs powered by the more reliable F100-PW-220 turbofan. These aircraft also had structural strengthening and were provided with the enlarged HUD that was first introduced on the F-16C/D. The OCU included updates for radar and software, and upgrades for the fire control and stores management computers. A data transfer unit was added, and a radar-barometric altimeter was provided. Provision was made for the carrying of AN/ALQ-131 jamming pods. There was a provision for the installation of a ring laser inertial navigation system. F-16A/Bs manufactured since 1988 were built to OCU standards (starting with Block 15Y), with earlier Block 15 aircraft later being brought up to OCU status. The OCU program makes these F-16A/Bs comparable in many respects to F-16C/D models. Block 15 OCU F-16A/Bs were delivered as add-ons for Belgium (44), Denmark (12), the Netherlands (51), and Norway (2). Also included were planes delivered in the late 1980s and early 1990s to Indonesia (12), Pakistan (11), Portugal (20), Singapore (8) and Thailand (18).

Production for the USAF totaled 674 F-16As and 121 F-16Bs. Of these, two F-16As (82-0966, 82-0974) were built by Fokker and three F-16As were built by SABCA. The remainder were built by Fort Worth. Fort Worth built 67 F-16As for Israel, 39 for Egypt, 28 for Pakistan (plus a second batch of 11 which have not yet been delivered), 18 for Venezuela, eight for Thailand, four for Singapore, eight for Indonesia, eight for Thailand, 12 for Singapore, and 6 for Malaysia. Fort Worth built 8 F-16Bs for Israel, 9 for Egypt, twelve for Pakistan (including four built by Fokker), six for Venezuela, four for Singapore, four for Thailand, four for Indonesia and two for Malaysia. In the initial European order, SABCA built 96 F-16As for the Belgian Air Force (serials FA-01/96) at Gosselies. The last example was delivered on April 28, 1985, this aircraft being the final aircraft on the original NATO F-16 order for 348 planes. A second order for 40 (FA-97/136) was completed in 1991. Forty six were built for Denmark (serials E-174/203). SABCA built 24 F-16Bs for Belgium (serials FB-01/24) and 16 for Denmark (serials ET-204/211, ET-0197/199, ET-022). Fokker built an initial batch of 40 F-16As for the Netherlands Air Force (serials J-212/258, J-616/648) Orders have since been increased to a total of 167 (serials J-864/881, J-358/367, J-136/146, J-054/063, J-508/514, J-001/012, J-013/021) The last 20 on the order were designated F-16A(R) and were capable of carrying an Oude Delft Orpheus sensor pod on the fuselage centerline station. This variant was first flown on January 27, 1983. Fokker also built two F-16As for the USAF, and built sixty for Norway. Fokker built an initial batch of 22 F-16Bs for the Netherlands (serials J-259/271, J-649/657) plus at least fourteen more (serials J-882, J-884/885, J-208/211, J368/369, J-064/065, J-515/516). One example was delivered to Egypt and 12 F-15Bs were delivered to Norway. Two of the original batch for the Netherlands were completed as F-16B(R) and were capable of carrying the underfuselage Orpheus reconnaissance pod
