F-16 Fighting Falcon, the “Viper”! The most successful, mightiest and agile fighter in the globe. A true legend of jet aviation that inspired modellers and enthusiasts more than any other aircraft, the F-16 seems like a masterpiece of aerodynamics with its splendid flying virtues, its powerful engine and the innovations that it introduced, such as the side stick, the bubble canopy, and the excellent blended wing-fuselage shape. 

After the huge success of the first edition of the Viper book, Eagle Aviation is proud to publish the new and updated ultimate guide for the modern Viper, a unique 600 photos book that uncovers every aspect of the F-16C/D/E/F Fighting Falcon. Cockpits, fuselage details, landing gear, engines, and avionics are thoroughly presented throughout the totally redesigned book both in content as well as in size. 
This Special Edition is redesigned with over 75% new photographs and offers 44 extra pages and larger size. (144 in total in A4 landscape format).
What is unique however, is that this is probably the only publication where the experienced modeller, as well as the serious enthusiasts, will discover all the internal parts of the jet shot during heavy maintenance like the engine bay, fuel cells, APU, hydraulic systems, flight control actuators etc. as well as all the modern ordnance (no practice rounds) from AIM-120Cs and AIM-2000s up to AGM-154Cs and GBU-50s. Further to this, several users of the type are presented. The reader can find detailed illustrated information for aircraft in use with over 10 Forces including USAF, Israeli, Hellenic, United Arab Emirates, Polish, Singaporean and Chilean Air Force as well as some other Air Forces from all around the globe.
Yet another F-16 book in the market? As every publication has its own purpose, Under The Skin books series books are designed having in mind the appetite for capturing through the photographic lens almost every disclosed detail of the aircraft in focus. And this SPECIAL edition F-16 Viper Under The Skin is a true representation of that!
Photo processing and printing quality: All photos are processed vigilantly, colour by colour, to match the exact tones of the real parts of the jet so that the reader gets a clear and accurate picture of the subject.
