C-130 Hercules:

Two Hercules C.5 purchased from the Royal Air Force. These are currently worked on by Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group at Cambridge, UK.

F-16:

Bahrein became the first customer for the F-16V (Block 70) variant of the F-16. On June 22, 2018 the contract for 16 aircraft was awarded by the US DoD. The number has been reduced due to cost reductions, the Royal Bahraini Air Force had planned to purchase 19 new F-16s. Its current 20 F-16C/Ds will be upgraded to the F-16V model.
