so post CCIP upgrades what is the advantage or point of of having a USAF block 40 with its weaker engine if a USAF/ANG F16CM block 50 is already in development? clearly WAR HUD was only really advantageous for low altitude nap of the earth flying with old LANTIRN?

Besides at this point LAntirn is antiquated and inconveniently requires a second point for navigation pod, considering by 2007, TGP options would be Lightening 2 AT or Sniper XR, both of whch are 2 in 1 pods so to speak, and offer much better capabilities. Also worth mentioning the HTS pod which I still i think a block 50 unique feature.
