The pilot of the F-16 Viper, which is the U.S. Air ForceA’s frontline fighter and attack aircraft, is at the pinnacle of combat aviation. Viper Force tells the story of what it takes to become an F-16 pilot and what itA’s like to fly and fight the Viper in combat. Because the F-16 is a dual-purpose combat aircraft, its pilot must master two widely divergent disciplines: air-to-air flying against enemy fighters to maintain control of the air over the battle field and air-to-ground flying in support of ground forces, soldiers, and marines, in contact. The crucible for creation of the Viper pilot is the air forceA’s 56th Fighter Wing, the successor to World War IIA’s 56th Fighter Group, the legendary ZemkeA’s Wolpack, which also flew a fighter/attack aircraft, the P-47 Thunderbolt. Viper Force also provides an up-close and personal look at the F-16 Viper squadron at war with information on its missions, command and control in the air, and the crucially important but often overlooked maintenance and ordnance ground crew.A SLD delivery is a system lay down, utilizing the Viper radara#39;s Doppler beam sharpening to take a radar map of an obvious feature, like a bridge crossing a river, ...
