Going back to the 50 vs 52. It was my understanding the the Block 50 was most of the upgrades (JHMCS and CFT) were a part of the 50 and the 52 was the engine upgrade. At hte very least, I thought the JHMCS and CFT were a part of the same timeframe/upgrades.

This pretty much answers a lot of the questions you have on what upgrades were done when.

Counter measure panels have change, Avionics power panels have change. Engine Starting Systems Controller have change, Flight control Computers have change, RWR, Engine, JHMCS; the list goes on. I am only talking about USAF F-16C block 50, not even thinking about other countries.

So before making a post saying this or that is wrong, please lets all make sure what versions we are looking at. Before posting that "chart" about turn performance, what flight control software and computer is that chart based on? On the USAF block 50 alone there are several different flight control computer and software.

Before posting a video about the engine, do you know there are 6 different engines for the F-16? Not just block 50 but F-16 in general.
F100-PW-200 (block 1 to 25), F100-PW-220 (block 1 to 25, 32 and 42), F100-PW-229 (block 42 and 52, 52+), F110-GW-100 (30, 40) F110-GE-129 (50, 50+), F110-GE-132 (60). They all have subversion also, as an example last time I check, the F110 has the 100, 100B, 100C and 100D. How many F110-GE-129 subversion are there? I don't know, does anyone know?

Avionics power have several versions; Some with MMC, Some with MMC and EGI

There are several OFP and they all bring different capabilities. M3.4+, M4.2+, M4.3+, M5.1+
So unless you have specific dates for when those OFP became operational ( and their capabilities) maybe hold off on that:" it should carry this weapons or this pod". A youtube video can't tell you what software that specific F-16 is using.

Pods have different software, and example sniper S1.8 or S3.5. Seeing a video of the Sniper pods does not tell you it capabilities unless you know the specific software used on the video. Same goes to all other pods (LITENING, HTS, etc.)

So, more than likely (if ED stays on this specific version) this module wont match what most of us think we know of the F-16.

So glad we are *not* getting the CFT. It's hideous.

Plus the argument of "Other Countries Use It" is the same reason a CFT should be able to make it, if it is the right model.
CFT (like any thing else in the F-16) are country specific, block specific and year specific. Not all block 50 can carry them, same way not all block 50 can carry HTS, or AAQ-13 etc.

Think of the F-16 like a computer tower. Many people have the same tower, but different CPU
,video card, mother board, memory, keyboard, version of windows, etc.

F-16 is the same: as in every user has a different version, updated and a different rate, at different times.

Which, with the Syria/Israel map coming up, was really hoping we could get some Israeli specialty going. But I guess we are again limited to US specifics.
