|Super excellent rug. Perhaps the best of this lot of F16s rugs. Striking blue, red and green accents spring out from the blue background. Intricate patterns and designs between and on the different weapons and vehicles give this rug a lot of depth.
Border consists of multicolored medallions with jagged white sawtooth guard stripes.
