Wikipedia

The General Dynamics F-16XL is a derivative of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, with a cranked-arrow delta wing. It was originally conceived as a technology demonstrator, later entered in the United States Air Force's (USAF) Enhanced Tactical Fighter (ETF) competition but lost to the F-15E Strike Eagle. Several years after the prototypes were shelved, they were turned over to NASA for additional aeronautical research. Both aircraft are currently stored at Edwards AFB.

Originally, the single-seat version of the General Dynamics F-16XL was to have been designated F-16E, with the twin-seat variant designated F-16F. This was sidelined by the Air Force's selection of the competing F-15E Strike Eagle in the Enhanced Tactical Fighter fly-off in 1984. The 'Block 60' designation had also previously been set aside in 1989 for the A-16, but this model was dropped. The F-16E/F designation now belongs to a version developed especially for the United Arab Emirates Air Force, and is sometimes unofficially called the "Desert Falcon".

The two-seat aircraft have the enlarged avionics dorsal spine compartment which is located behind the cockpit and extends to the tail. It adds 30 cu ft (850 L) to the airframe for more avionics with only small increases in weight and drag.

Armament
Guns: 1 × 20 mm (0.79 in) M61 Vulcan rotary cannon
Hardpoints: 17 pylons with a capacity of up to 15,000 lb (6,800 kg) of payload (Note: stations 2-5 and 13-16 were split into groups, similar to the F-15E)

    @YourWeaponsGuy
    My English is not good. I hope you can understand what I said

    Put missile and cannon/bomb together and let them have the same name. Input -1 into the Armed Group of cannon/bomb. Input -FireWeapons into the Armed Group of missile.Set the missile's lockTime to 0. Set the missile's max TargetingAngle to 360.And you'll also have to test it yourself a few times based on your weapon, and adjust it based on the results. For example, increase or decrease the weight of the weapon.

    The link to the bomb is here. You can study this method based on it

    This feels like a build for the Remaster Challenge, yet it actually isn't. Wow, I'm amazed.
