Key Points

- Lockheed Martin has reported growing demand for F-16 aircraft
- The company has rolled out new block upgrades and a F-16V variant

The demand for F-16 Fighting Falcons is accelerating around the world due to new production models and upgrades, according to a company official.

Victor Torla, Lockheed Martin rotary and mission systems business development director, told Jane's in a February interview that the company found new customers for the F-16 platform with the block 60 and 70 upgrades as well as the F-16V configuration. He said these new customers come from countries that previously flew older variants of the aircraft such as Romania and Jordan as well as new customers looking at the Block 70 upgrades. Lockheed Martin has also received interest from the Middle East, Asia, and Europe.

The Block 70 upgrades include improved radar systems, advanced weapons capabilities, and enhanced battlespace awareness. These include a new Northrop Grumman APG-83 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar with a new avionics architecture and structural upgrades to extend airframe life.

A new Center Pedestal Display (CPD) on the Block 70 provides critical tactical imagery to pilots on a high-resolution 300 cm 2 screen. Bahrain and Slovakia recently became Lockheed Martin's first Block 70 customers. Parsley said the United States and Bulgaria are currently negotiating Bulgaria's planned acquisition of new Block 70 aircraft.

The Block 60 upgrades feature a Northrop Grumman AN/APG-80 agile beam radar with AESA antenna, a new core avionics suite based on an advanced mission computer utilising commercial hardware and software, and a digital fuel system. The Block 60 was designed for the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

F-16V upgrades include a Link 16 theatre datalink, the Sniper advanced targeting pod (ATP), advanced weapons, precision Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation and the Auto Ground Collision Avoidance System (Auto GCAS).

Não admira que a procura do upgrade aumente. Quando o caça "milagroso"  F35 nunca mais passa ao activo e ainda está bem longe de estar sem problemas....
Até eu já tinha dito noutro post, venha o upgrade V e lá pra depois de 2025/30 pode ser que o F35 já esteja mais maduro (e funcional).
 :-P

Não é só a procura de upgrade. Já são dois lotes de novos F16V encomendados, tanto dos Eslovacos com do Bahrain, isto além do Upgrade de 85 aparelhos gregos  (o que ainda me faz estranhar mais a opção F35, visto que vão ficar muitos operadores de F16 na própria nato).  ??? ???

Consider where F-16s have been selling lately. Potential purchasers of the plane include not just India itself, but also its neighbor Pakistan. Shift your gaze 2,100 miles to the west, and Bahrain, too, just placed a $1.1 billion order for 16 ultra-modern F-16V Block 70 Falcons -- part of an earlier-negotiated deal that could eventually grow to $3.8 billion in value. Even farther west, Greece, too, is interested in ordering upgrades for its fleet of 85 older F-16s, and Slovakia wants to buy 14 jets of the new F-16V configuration -- for $2.9 billion

E não te esqueças dos Viper de Taiwan, também um upgrade é certo, mas os primeiros a voar.  ;)

E é olhando para este de Taiwan às células A/B que podíamos perfeitamente fazer o nosso, pelo menos ao lote original Peace Atlantis I.

Taiwan’s updated F-16V Viper fighter jet begins flight test program
Aug 28, 2018  in Aviation, News

The first updated F-16V F-16V Viper (onboard number “6626”) fighter jet made its first flight and inaugurating an intensive flight trials campaign. According to theHccapa.com, in Taichung was started series flight tests of the first Lockheed Martin F-16A fighter jet of the Republic of China, which was modernized by the Taiwanese state-owned Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC) in the version of F-16V Viper.

The flight trials campaign is carried out by American test pilots of Lockheed Martin Corporation, said in Taiwan media reports. The full upgrade program is supposed to wrap up some time between 2022 and 2023. The first four F-16A/B fighters of the Taiwan Air Force entered the AIDC facility in Taichung in January 2017, these aircraft are being modernized as experienced and must undergo an extensive flight trials campaign. The most advanced version of the F-16 fighter fleet, the V class would give Taiwan a bolstered ability to defend its territory.

It is assumed that AIDC will modernize 24 fighters per year, and the deadline for the completion of work is now considered to be 2023. The total cost of the modernization program is estimated at $ 5.3 billion. TheAir Forces Monthly reported that the upgraded F-16V introduces AN/APG-83 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, new mission computer and F-16C/D landing gear. The AN/APG-83 can simultaneously perform a search, tracking, and lock-on functions. For multiple targets, the detection range is increased by more than 30% compared with the original APG-66(V)3 radar. Overall battlefield detection capability is reportedly increased by 220%, and self-protection capability by 180%.

muito importante este upgrade de Taiwan...
para manter os Chineses em respeito...
quem mais teria a coragem de fazer esta venda senão Trump...
chamem-lhe boçal!...
mas se não fosse a coragem dele rapidamente ficaríamos nas mãos da mais sinistra ditadura que a humanidade já conheceu -a China...
e é ele que está a cortar as pernas da China do ponto de vista económico, o que servirá para cortar as pernas militarmente...
vendam mais Viper a Taiwan...e muitos!...
