The Definitive Simulation of the F-16 Fighting Falcon
When the U.S. Air Force needed massive firepower in the early days of Desert storm, they called on the trusted F-16 Fighting Falcon. Nicknamed the "Viper" by the U.S. Air Force, the F-16 flew more missions during Desert Storm than any other aircraft. The F-16 was used to demolish Saddam Hussein's military production facilities, Scud missile sites, and airfields.
Now you can feel the rush of flying the F-16 deep into enemy territory in hotspots around the world. With an easy-to-use tutorial and training missions, iF-16 was designed for novice and veteran pilots alike. As you learn how to fly iF-16, you can use Interactive Magic's "invincible" mode and blast your way through enemy lines. As you progress through the game, you will be able to fly challenging missions using the F-16's high-tech controls and LANTIRN capabilities.

F-16: General Characteristics
Interactive Magic, September 15, 1997
iF-16 has "accurate modeling, coupled with excellent gameplay. The best of both worlds." said PC Zone Magazine in their recent 91% rating of the game. In their 92% review of iF-16, Joker Magazine stated that this is "Digital Intergration's best flight simulator to date - if you're into flight and fight games you won't want to miss this one."
iF-16 contains a free-for-all arcade mode so that new players can quickly jump into the cockpit and enjoy combat action. For veteran players, iF-16 contains challenging missions and campaigns in Israel, Cyprus, and Korea. The game allows players to select their specific weapons for each mission and to control their wingmen during flight.
Based on the Block-C Mid-Life Update of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, iF-16 models the aircraft's "Lantirn" technology and allows players to locate and destroy enemy targets with special night vision capabilities. iF-16 contains a comprehensive array of weapons including Sidewinders, explosive rockets, laser-guided and infra-red Mavericks, general purpose, retarded and laser-guided bombs and cluster bombs.
"The F-16 is the workhorse of the U.S. Air Force," said Interactive Magic Chairman "Wild Bill" Stealey. "The Fighting Falcon is a $14 million flying masterpiece that can strike a target and vanish into the clouds without a trace. Our simulation will allow gamers to master the F-16 aircraft and feel a thrill that only a limited number of talented pilots have ever experienced."
The F-16, well-known for its dog-fighting capabilities and high standards of performance, was designed to be a lightweight and highly maneuverable aircraft. Equally potent in air-to-air and air-to-surface roles, F-16's flew approximately 13,500 sorties/missions in Desert Storm. The aircraft is credited with attacking enemy ground forces in Kuwait, knocking out Scud missile sites, and destroying chemical and weapon factories in Iraq.
