Russian speakers would enjoy a lot with the following russian page about the AN/APG-66. Its a russian translation of a LONG and EXTREMLY detailed analysis of AN/APG-66 published bak then in the 80s by the IEEE.

I will made an english translation for those that didn't talk russian and attach it here as a word document...worth checking!.

New developments ... M4.2+ swing role suite :)
The F-16 is a compact, multirole fighter aircraft designed to be highly maneuverable in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. There are several versions of the F-16 used by the United States, including the Block 40 and Block 50.

The Block 40 F-16 primary mission fills the air-to-surface attack role, while the Block 50’s primary mission is destruction and suppression of enemy air defenses.

The M4.2-plus avionics upgrade combines both combat roles into a single fighter aircraft. The upgrade is being completed using spiral development, meaning all program stakeholders, including developmental testers, contractors and operational units work together early in the process to ensure testing is conducted more efficiently. This helps align operational objectives and is geared toward providing mature, stable systems to the warfighter as quickly as possible.

"The M4.2-plus upgrade achieves the goal of the Air Force's F-16 Common Configuration Implementation Program to support common aircraft equipment and core avionics software capabilities," said Shauna Urwiller, Global Power Fighters program manager from the 416th FLTS.

Do you have the product or brochure for these data ?
Or do you know where this information originally came from?
