One notices that the weapons pylons are now empty, only the massive fuel pods, and the IAF air-air side missiles remain on the wing tips. This looks like the brand new F-16I SUFA, the most state of art F16 just recently coming off custom order assembly lines & specializing in long range air to ground interdiction. These aircraft are normally rearmed, fuelled and then back out on a mission.
