JAS-39 vs F-16 (latest models/blocks of each)?
Patriotism and subjectivity aside. Which one do you prefer and why?

The Saab is cheaper, lighter, has Stol abilities, quicker to rearm & refuel. Easy to fly.

Hard to say other than the F-16 is battle tested and flown by more Air Forces around the world. Why compare those two and not the latest and greatest F-22 and F-35?

I don't have personal preferences. Each is a tool designed to do certain jobs in a certain way and each goes about its work somewhat differently. Which one is preferable depends on the needs of the user, which will be different from one nation to the next.

I am leaning toward the SAAB but at the end of the day it is in the hands of the pilot at the time and how the aircraft is kitted out and it's age and model

I've only loaded weapons on the F-16. The other looks too low to the ground to suit me.
