Sidewinders[edit]

During the rescue Doug says he has two sidewinders left. After he shoots down the leader he tells his dad he only has 30 rounds left.

I removed this part because it didn't flow well with the section it was in (well, not as well as anything flows in that section), and because the previous point about changing weapons loadouts and continuity errors covers this without going into excessive trivia. Of course, feel free to debate the point, argue, and/or call me names as you see fit if you disagree (hell, do it if you think it's fun).--Raguleader 01:13, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

F-16 Weight on Wheels sensor[edit]

He also fires an AGM-65 Maverick missile while on the ground, which is not possible in real life - the F-16's weapon system is inhibited by a pressure sensor in the nosegear.

I removed this part because it simply isn't true. It is possible to release a munition from an F-16 while on the groud. There is a switch called Ground Jettison Enable that is mainly used for operational checks, but if left in the wrong position, may cause firing while the aircraft is on the ground. It has happened before, in fact.---edited by guest, 22:10, 2 September 2007 (EST)

Enemy Aircraft[edit]

Can we have some agreement on which planes were used for the enemy please. As of 18/12/07 it seems that this is undecided. -- 129.11.76.216 (talk) 09:17, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

They are certainly IAI Kfir C2/C7. Also im going to remove the "citation needed" tag in the statement about the USN using Kfirs to train.. they really used them and even got the designation F-21 Lion (Kfir in english means "young lion"). There is many pics of Kfirs in USN markings.. like this:
