Lovely little video of Colombian Kfir C.10s in action. Funny how you can take what is essentially a 1960s design, stick a big honkin' American stovepipe in it and then decorate it with all the electronics imaginable to create an affordable modern light fighter (who needs a Gripen anyway?). The Colombians didn't cheap out on it either - note the Python 5s, i-Derby ERs, LGBs and targeting pods. Word has it they also have AESA radars. I'll bet you the French designers never, not even in their wildest dreams, imagined that their design would soldier on for more than half a century.
