F-16

​​​​​F-16 is a compact multi role fighter jet. It is very manoeuvrable and has proved its qualities both in the air-to-surface and air-to-air role. 

After its introduction in the late 1970s, F-16 has become the world's most sought-after fighter jet. Due to continued upgrades, the Norwegian F-16s are still operational and highly advanced aircrafts. 

Norwegian F-16s have participated under operations in Afghanistan, and two jet are constantly on 15-minutes standby for NATO.
