Also very limited range and payload.

To be fair F16 is super short leged and you are comparing a generation older design.

Even so combat radius or payload come at discounted price fraction of an F16 cheaper than a modern turboprop , plus its made so it can be maintained in 3 world countries in active warzones which F16 couldn’t , remember US pesonet pick up stones and FOD on runways before sorties ,so you ither have a limited mach 2 plane or you have an F16 gate gard
