|This type of rug is the founder of Warrug.coms favorite type of Baluchi war rug. Although they feature clearly labeled F-16s they predate the War on Terror. The first we encountered this type was in 1996. What F16s are doing in these rugs is a puzzle, and if you have any ideas please contact us. We have a couple of these available right now, each is beautiful.
The figures with bombs on the backs of the F-16s are incredibly interesting.
