Notes:

This is the Electronics Unit from the F-16 AFTI programme and it is also labelled: "AFTI/F-16 CAS". A close-air support (CAS) test program finally began in the summer of 1991, and was focused on demonstrating technologies to find and destroy ground targets by day or night, and in bad weather. This made use of low altitude and manoeuvring, and was known as close air support and battlefield air interdiction. In addition the symbology was much modified in the Electronics Unit to work with the capability that the AFTI now had with its new digital flight control system however the system overall was not capable of presenting raster video.
