I wonder if that engine fits in a block 10?

The F-35 program office is looking at adding capacity for another AIM-120 AMRAAM radar-guided air-to-air missile in each of the jet’s two weapons bays, increasing internal—and thus stealthy—missile loadout by 50 percent, program director Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan said March 22. Speaking with reporters after his speech at a McAleese/Credit Suisse conference in Washington, D.C., Bogdan said, “There is potential … to add a third missile on each side.” The upgrade would likely be part of the Block IV program of F-35 enhancements, but “that’s something I know the services and all the partners” are interested in. Bogdan said this would not require some special version of AMRAAM, but “the same AMRAAM missiles that we carry today, just an extra one; probably on the weapons bay door.” The F-35 can carry two AMRAAMs in each bay now, or a mix of AMRAAMs and Joint Direct Attack Munitions internally.

If "Net Enabled Weapons" doesn't give you a tactical aviation woody, I don't know what will. I'm also intrigued to see the GBU-38 on the list. I know it's frequently used on other platforms but I thought I read somewhere that they wanted to go with the GBU-54 full-time and skip -38 integration for cost and resource savings. How old is that slide?

Testing of ejection seats complete (maybe)

Raptors won't talk? Or the Lightning just won't listen?

The F-35 will be getting a new, cleaner look. New airplanes will roll out with the new coating starting late second quarter of this year, and older airplanes will be scheduled to get the new coating over time.



Apparently the new uniform coating will save $49 million in materials throughout the program lifetime, and save ~128 work hours per airplane.
