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) that accommodates 22 illuminated push buttons and 3 LED three character displays, in addition to 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.
