F 16 End User Agreement

Note that no code name has been assigned to the sale of the F-16E and F-16F Block 60 models in the United Arab Emirates, as it was not sold under an SGF agreement. Venezuela, the first – and long the only – Latin American user of the F-16s, ordered in May 1982, as part of the PEACE DELTA program, a total of 24 F-16A/B block 15 aircraft; The U.S. government initially proposed the F-16/J79 version, but eventually authorized the sale of the standard Block 15 version. [111] Delivery of 18 Models A and 6 “B” models began in September 1983 and was completed in 1985. Since their commissioning in 1984, these fighters have served with the 161st and 162nd Fighter Air Group 16 fighter forces at El Libertador Air Base in Palo Negro. The Venezuelan Air Force had wanted to order another batch of 24 planes, but could not afford to buy it. [112] On 29 July 1996, a $220 million agreement was signed between the United States and Jordan authorizing the leasing of 16 F-16 fighter aircraft (12 F-16A aircraft and 4 F-16B aircraft) to Jordan. The agreement, officially signed by Marshal Marei, Chief of Staff of the Royal Jordanian Armed Forces, and Major General Ababneh, Chief of Staff of the Royal Jordanian Air Force, was linked to the Middle East peace process and close ties between the United States and Jordan. The comprehensive material/training support agreement, known as the F-16 Peace Falcon Program, includes funding for aircraft construction improvements, engine modifications, spare parts support and procurement equipment, and pilot/maintenance training. In May 2002, the Sultanate of Oman signed an agreement with the U.S. government to purchase 12 Advanced Block 50 F-16im Peace A`SAMA A`SAFIYA (“Clear Skies”) Foreign Military Sales (FMS). The agreement includes eight single-seater F-16Cs and four two-seater F-16Ds. [71] On August 23, 2010 the peace A`sama A`safiya II contract was signed, which again exposed ten F-16Cs and two F-16Ds in 2014.

[72] Like Egypt, Jordan opened the door to modern American arms sales by concluding a peace agreement with Israel in 1994. The program was successful and provided Jordan with 16 F-16A/B combat aircraft in 1997 and 1998 as part of the Peace Falcon I program, and the RJAF recognized the need to provide these aircraft with a quarantine update (MLU) in the next 2-3 years. (2 F-16A block 15 ADF aircraft crashed during the years of service). [65] A second Peace Falcon II program provided 17 other similar aircraft.
