Default controlstick of C-model?

Guys, does anyone know when the stick of the C-model changed to the new stick as we have it here in DCS? The RW-Manual of the models up to C/D shows only the simple old stick...

It was around 1985-86. The 15s went thru a Multi-stage improvement program (MSIP) that included an upgraded a programmable armament control system and I believe that same upgrade included the new control stick.

I know all 15s with APG70 radar had the newer control stick. It's been too long since I worked on them to remember all of the differences between models and upgrades. Radar was was not my avionics specialty......and I started my USAF career at a test wing so we saw all sorts of strange configurations before they made it to the front line units.
