    Hola, serìa positivo que Northtop Grumman (que produce tanto APG-68(V)9 como APG-83 SABR) permitiese dar los APG-68(V)9 en parte de pago (incluir su enajenaciòn como parte del deal) o bien revenderlos recolocándolos en alguna otra fuerza aèrea que los ocupe en sus F-16C (las hay varias), para asì poder recuperar valor de ellos. Mal que mal son sensores jòvenes y capaces que pueden seguir siendo usados en otros Vipers o como fuente de repuestos.

    Para nosotros la estandarizaciòn, no es sòlo cosa de performance sino de economìa de mantenimiento y operación.

    Una nuda, SABR es GaN o Gallium Arsenide?

    Saludos

    Más buenas nuevas para los F-16 C/D a nivel mundial vía Jane's

    USAF considera ya no extender 300 F-16 sino hasta 841, y no hasta las 12.000 horas sino a 13.856

    USAF increases scope of F-16 SLEP to include more aircraft and airframe hours

    Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
    14 June 2017


    An F-16 undergoes durability testing in Lockheed Martin's Full Scale Durability Test facility in Fort Worth, Texas, ahead of the USAF's decision to approve a service life extension of up to 300 aircraft from 8,000 hours to 12,000 hours. It has now been revealed that 841 F-16s will have their hours increased to 13,856. Source: Lockheed Martin


    The US Air Force (USAF) is to increase the number of aircraft and additional airframe hours to be included in a planned service-life extension programme (SLEP) of its fleet of Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon combat aircraft.

    While the service had previously stated that up to 300 of the service's 1,017 Block 40/42 and 50/52 C- and D-model aircraft would see their airframe hours increased from the current 8,000 hours to 12,000 hours (an increase equivalent to about eight years of operational flying), a notice posted by the service on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website on 12 June says that these numbers are now to grow to 841 aircraft and 13,856 hours.

    "The F-16 USAF SLEP intends to extend the aircraft's current structural service life from 8,000 equivalent flight hours (EFH) up to 13,856 EFH by modifying and/or repairing life limiting, fractural critical, and safety of flight critical structure. This effort seeks to award a contract to a vendor who can manufacture and/or procure, assemble, and deliver up to the estimated maximum quantity of 841 F-16 Block 40-52, C/D-Model SLEP modification kits necessary to extend the structural service life of these aircraft, in accordance with Government standards and specifications defined in the Technical Data Package (TDP)," the notice said.

    Larga vida al F-16 C/D... del Block 40 para arriba.

    LM abriendo un proceso de reclutamiento para dar asesorìa al personal responsable de mantener y operar los F-16 y sus equipos anexos por 2 años, en Iquique. Contrato que se firmarà este 1 de Septiembre de 2017.

    Lo que màs me llama la atenciòn es que buscan personal que asesore y entrene en instalaciòn y operaciòn de elementos de aviònica de F-16, elevando las habilidades y auto-suficiencia del personal responsable. ¿serà la primera aproximaciòn hacia una modernizaciòn ulterior?
