Default F/A18C TAS Pod

Does anyone have any info for this, are we getting the TAS pod for Hornet? I saw PB mode crossed out in HARM page that indicates it can operate harms with TAS but haven't seen any mentions in hornet features of it.

I don't think the USN actually adopted the TAS pod for operational use, but maybe someone else could confirm that.
PB (Pre-Briefed) relies on having a designated target point (probably a pre-set waypoint and then hit WPDSG), so that the mission computer can supply range information to the HARM, so it can adjust its flight path. You don't need a TAS pod to use PB, AFAIK.

That's my understanding as well.
