B a c k g r o u n d


An aggressor is trained to act as an opposing force in military wargames. Aggressor squadrons use enemy tactics, techniques, and procedures to give a realistic simulation of air combat. More importantly, aggressor wear they adopt colours and marking designed to simulate aircraft flown by opposition forces*

The markings included in this release will allow you to depict aggressor F-16s flown by the 64th Aggressor Squadron or 414th Combat Training Squadron in the late 1980s, and 1990s. More recent schemes are also included allowing you to depict almost all aggressor schemes (markings are not included for artic aggressor schemes or the very latest aggressor markings seen on the internet in recent weeks).

With one exception, these decals are designed for Tamiya’s excellent F-16C kits, the exception being the markings included for an F-16D.



This jaw dropping collection of markings is a joy to behold. As with Bulleye’s first releases, they’re beautiful decals, detailed and precise. Colour density and registration are flawless, and the inclusion of 18 different marking options – you read that correctly, 18! – make this decal set outstanding value for money. There appear to be eight complete data sets here too, so you’ll definitely get value here if you take care when cutting and storing decals.



If Aggressor F-16s are your thing and you missed out on the earlier Afterburner Aggressor decal sheets, you won’t want to miss this comprehensive release from Bullseye.



Most marking options are for Block 32 single seat F-16s. However, decals are also included for a Block 25 F-16 wearing an attractive blue (FS 35109), white (FS 36628) and grey (FS 36270) “Splinter” scheme and a Block 32 F-16D wearing a “Fulcrum” scheme.



To understand the difference between the various blocks and which parts of the Tamiya kit you need to use to achieve the result you’re looking for refer to Scott Brown’s reference article here on HyperScale.
