ANG F-16


Recommended Posts

"When the General Electric engine was first fitted on Block 30 models, it was soon realized that this engine required more air than the Pratt & Whitney engine. To increase the airflow, the intake was widened at the opening, resulting in the MCID (Modular Common Inlet Duct), or "Bigmouth" intake. This intake first appeared on F-16D 86-0044 and F-16C 86-0262. All previous Block 30s have the NSI intake, while all subsequent Block 30, 40, 50 and 60 aircraft have the MClD intake. The MCID intake can be distinguished by a much larger opening than the NSI".
