The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January 1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as the “Viper” and will remain in USAF service until 2025.

The 157th FS “Swamp Fox” / 169th FW, South Carolina ANG started to receive the F-16 Fighting Falcon in July 1983. In 1995 became the first ANG unit to receive the F-16 Block 52 directly from the manufacturer instead of second-hand from regular force units. This change made them into a multi-role unit and with the arrival of the HARM Targeting System the 157th FS became a Wild Weasel Squadron. 2015 was the 50th Anniversary of the 157th FS and was marked by a special paint scheme on F-16 92-3911.
