The Portuguese Air Force conducts on its base post-repair tests of the F-16AM Fighting Falcon fighter, which will soon be transferred to colleagues from Romania, the blog reports bmpd with reference to airfighters.com.




The blogger notes that “the aircraft (serial number M17-4 / 61-534) still retains the Portuguese military number 15123, but has already received a new camouflage coloration, albeit without applying Romanian identification marks”.

The Romanian military signed a contract for the purchase of second-hand fighter jets from Portugal in 12. Its cost was € 2013 million.

Under the terms of the contract, “Romania buys six F-16AM fighters and three F-16BM sparks from the presence of the Portuguese Air Force, as well as three F-16A fighters that will be sold specially to Romania for Portugal by the American Excess Defense Article (EDA) program with the storage of the US Air Force ", - stated in the publication.

Delivery of all Romanian aircraft should be completed this year. And next year, the Romanian squadron should achieve operational readiness.

        No MiGs! Only racially faithful F-16s!
        The faithful assistants of the Fuhrer cannot fly Soviet aircraft!

    The experience of the Saudis in Yemen showed that buying modern weapons and learning how to fight well is not the same thing

    Romanians bought fresh, almost new planes. Well, for them even these "old men" are a joy, there is no money for more. They will fly on hominy.

    It is appropriate to recall Ceausescu, in which the Romanian army was generally not bad. He was killed almost immediately after the last debts of Romania to Western creditors were paid.

    Not much is off topic, I’m thinking whether this airplane with such wheels can land on a gravel or broken concrete airfield, or are they going to fight in ideal conditions?
