Notes:

This unit is an experimental derivative of the F-16A/B. It has a new Up Front Control Panel below the original Film Camera bracket The holds 22 illuminated push buttons and three LED, three character displays in addition to which were the normal HUD, system and Camera controls.. The PDU is very similar to C0048 but only has a single Combiner Glass. Since the Up Front Control Panel legends are also in Spanish it may well be that this is a prototype for the SINT project which was supplied to the Argentine Air Force around 1981.
