Default USMC to significantly upgrade F/A-18C/D

Legacy Hornet? Classic Hornet? Yet, a considerable fleet of USMC Cs and Ds will see some upgrades...and rather substantial ones (AESA radar)!

I‘m so happy my favorite fighter for the last 30 years will get even more love

Hmm, C+ does seem like a great way to upgrade, without spending a mountain of money! That large color touchscreen...hmm!!

The USMC F/A-18C+ has been announced for over 3 years, they already have a few converted.

They are getting the E/F Block I Cockpits similar to some of the newer Legacy Hornet Export Blocks.

I thought the C+ units that were converted had large single-touchscreen panels like the F-35 display?
