Major Program Upgrades

  • F-16 MSIP In 1980, General Dynamics, USAF and the EPG partners initiated a long-term Multinational Staged Improvement Program (MSIP) to evolve new capabilities for the F-16. This include Structural and wiring provisions for:
  1. Wide-field-of-view raster head-up display (HUD)
  2. Multi-function displays
  3. Advanced fire control computer
  4. Central weapons interface unit
  5. Integrated Communications/Navigation/Identification (CNI) system
  6. Beyond-visual-range (BVR) air-to-air missiles
  7. Electro-optical and target acquisition pods
  8. Internal electronic countermeasures (ECM) systems
  9. Increased-capacity environmental control and electrical power systems

F-16A/B Block 15 OCU

In 1988, all Block 15 F-16A/B were delivered with an Operational Capability Upgrade (OCU). These aircraft incorporates:

1:-Wide-angle HUD that was first introduced on the F-16C/D Block 25,
2:-Reliable F100-PW-220 turbofans
3:-Updated defensive systems
4:-Ability to fire the AIM-120 AMRAAM

F-16 MLU

Mid-Life Update package was designed to upgrade it to the equivalent to Block 50:

Cockpit and avionics

Add the ability to employ radar-guided air-to-air missiles

Enhance the operational performance and improve the reliability, supportability and maintainability of the aircraft.

Falcon UP

The anticipated average service life of the F-16A/B had fallen to 5500 flying hours. In the early 1990s, the Falcon UP program restored the 8000-hour capability. Falcon UP effort was replicated to Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) for F-16A/B aircraft to assure their achieving 8000 hours.

Falcon STAR

Falcon STAR (Structural Augmentation Roadmap) is a program to repair and replace critical airframe components on all F-16 A/B/C/D aircraft; like Falcon UP. It is intended to ensure an 8000-hour service life, but is based on more recent operational statistics.

CUPID

Combat Upgrade Plan Integration Details (CUPID) is an ongoing initiative to bring older U.S’s Block 25/30/32 F-16s closer to Block 50/52 specifications. CUPID focuses on:

1:-Improved precision attack capabilities
2:-Night vision equipment
3:-Data links
4:-Carriage of the Litening II infrared targeting pod
5:-Laser- and GPS-guided weapons.
