Although evolved in parallel with the I.A.R.15, the I.A.R.16, which flew for the first time in 1934, was the first of Carafoli's fighters to feature an all-metal structure, this having plywood, fabric and duralumin skinning. It was powered by a 560hp Bristol Mercury IVS.2 nine-cylinder radial enclosed by a Townend ring and carried an armament of two 7.7mm Vickers guns. The I.A.R.16 was not developed further than a single prototype.
