Were these used in the War on Terror?
Most of the jet usage in the war on terror came after their retirement (Zarb-e-Azb and beyond). I don’t think they were used in the WoT in Swat during 2007-2009, likely because the F-16 could deliver strikes much more precisely. Other than that mostly helicopter gunships were used, in Swat a lot of the fighting was in the city and surrounding towns, so bombings would cause a lot of collateral damage too.

If they were used and I’m not aware then someone kindly correct me.
