Royal Bahraini Air Force to receive F 16 Training Simulators Royal Bahraini Air Force F-16C Fighting Falcon

Bahrain was the first country in the Gulf region to acquire the F-16 and the first in the world to procure the advanced F-16 Block 70.

Bahrain will have a fleet of 16 F-16s, which is the world’s most successful combat-proven multirole fighter. It builds interoperable capabilities within air forces, enhancing partnerships with allies and supporting national defense and security for nations around the world.

Since 2001, aviators from 16 allied nations have trained with Lockheed Martin F-16 training systems. To prepare F-16 pilots, the training suites will provide a simulation-based training environment that replicates all systems, sensors and weapons for a total training solution that can be networked together so pilots can train in various scenarios, aligning technologies to deliver advanced training while meeting affordability goals.

The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft.
