The F-2A, nicknamed Viper Zero, is a Japanese variant of the F-16C Fighting Falcon built jointly by Lockheed Martin and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

History

Strangereal

Developed from the original Fighting Falcon, the F-2A was created in the Strangereal world in the late 20th century in a collaborative project between several undetermined countries as a swing-role support fighter aircraft designed to attack ground targets and hostile warships. Despite its operational focus, it retained the ability to engage in aerial combat at will and carry anti-aircraft weaponry.[1]

Real world

A joint collaboration between Lockheed Martin and Mitsubishi, the origins of the F-2A trace back to a plan of the Japanese government from the 1980s to produce a secondary fighter to replace the aging F-1 trainer aircraft and supplement its other main fighters, the F-4EJ and the F-15J, using the F-16 as a basis.

In the Infinity timeline, the design of the F-2A was acquired by Wernher and Noah Enterprises.

"A support attacker used by the Japan Self-Defense Air Force. Fitted with the latest electronic systems at the time it was built, it was the first aircraft in the world to use carbon fiber composite single mold technology. Giving consideration to the island nature of Japan, it is especially focused on anti-vessel combat capabilities. Developed in collaboration between Japan and the US, it is also called the "Viper Zero"."

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

"Known as the "Viper Zero", the F2-A is a variant of the F-16. It is equipped with the latest avionic equipment, including phased-array radar. Although specifically designed for anti-ship operations, this powerful aircraft is also deployed in air-superiority and intercept missions. The F-2A is known for its responsiveness and stability - so much so that engine stall related accidents are extremely rare. Its high-performance armaments include that of high-maneuver and long-range missiles. While successfully fulfilling its conceived role of air-to-ground and air-to-ship intercept, the F-2A is also a formidable air-to-air multirole aircraft."
