Exercise Torrent preview: Republic of Singapore Air Force RSAF F-16D+ night attack fighters

These heavy hitters from 145 Squadron were the most powerful warplanes seen during Exercise Torrent VI in November 2008.

A pair of F-16D+ with conformal tanks and wing tanks, as well as a full suite of night attack sensors, thundered off Lim Chu Kang Road, which had been converted into an Alternate Runway by the RSAF Air Power Generation Command.

The upcoming Ex Torrent VII will feature a larger RSAF warplane whose potent suite of air-to-air, air-to-ground and datalink capabilities complement what the RSAF F-16D+ community can bring to the fight.

Can you guess which large warplane will roar off Lim Chu Kang Road for the first time during Torrent VII?
