Ace Combat Infinity

"A tractable, lightweight fighter with well-balanced maneuverability and stability. It has an exceptionally light weight and aerodynamic blended wing body, and though a single-engine plane, it is equipped with a powerful engine. Called the "Fighting Falcon", its relatively low cost and high power are the reason it has been adapted by air forces all over the world. To date, more than 4,000 of this best-selling model have been manufactured."

The smaller size of this aircraft makes it highly maneuverable, which roll and banking capabilities that are slightly superior to other aircraft. Although basic, its armaments are easy to use and adaptable to both air-to-air and air-to-ground tasks. The F-16 is a highly capable aircraft in almost any pilot’s hands."
