Two modernized F-16 jet fighters granted from the United States have arrived at the Iswahjudi Air Force Base in Magetan, East Java, on Monday.

 The two F-16 C/D 52ID fighter jets are a portion of the 24 aircraft the US government granted to Indonesia, which has received 14 aircraft until now.

"The two fighter planes were part of 24 units of F-16 fighter aircraft in the program of "Peace Bima Sena II" under the contract of FMS LOA ID-D-SAL between Indonesia and the United States," Chief of staff of Air Force Operation Command II, Air Vice Marshal Donny Ermawan said.

The fighter jets, already upgraded from Block 25 to Block 52 arrived in Iswahjudi Airport, Magetan Monday, Netral News reported today.

The upgrade includes structural modifications to extend the service time and engine overhaul. The two jet fighters have tail number of TS-1622 and TS16-38, and a part of 24 jet fighters to be granted by the US to the Indonesian government in line with the "Peace Bima Sena II" project.

Currently, there are sixteen F-16 jet fighters in Indonesian Air Force. By the end of 2017, all of the aircraft as grant would arrive in the country.

The aircraft will strengthen the Air Squadron 3 of Iswahjudi air force base of Magetan and Air Squadron 16 in the Roesmin Nurjadin air force base of Pekanbaru.
