The team exhibits the F-16CM Fighting Falcon’s qualities as a multi-role fighter aircraft that is highly maneuverable and provides air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack capabilities to the U.S. and Allied nations. The F-16 also conducts a variety of missions including suppression of enemy air defense, offensive and defense counter air and close air support.
