Normally I don't like F-2s as much as F-16s, and let alone all those bumps and warts, but for some reason this one is incredibly sexy.

Since this is a what if and your F-16G has a tail number FY of 2010, how about - it's a JSF alternative developed by Lockheed-Martin along with Mitsubishi after the F-35 was canceled?

Very nice F-16G!

Very nice F-16G!

Thats the general story line I'm working on.

Ive used all current or in development technology so it would be an off the shelf quick development and fielding AC Not 100% sure that the F-119 would fit but some internal airframe changes should fix that, and yes they have a 43000 lb thrust variant in the works for the Raptor so I borrowed it.

Look into the F135 engine under development for the JSF as a possible alternative if the F119 won't fit.

That's a nice what if build. Although as a personal favor i left off the canards. But the build looks awesome, nice weathering and awesome load out. Will take that plane in to combat any time. :thumbsup:

very nice Super Falcon you've got there. I've never been a fan of the beefier, lumpier Falcons that have been coming out, espeically with the spine, but I have always liked the concept of the Agile Falcon. You ought to post this at the What If forum. Someone a while back had an idea similar to yours. He used the front cockpit section of a Hasegawa D and grafted it on a F-2B fuselage. Forgot what the loadout and markings were though.
