The Brits still have SABRE. It is still in development with Airborne Engineering Ltd. in Westcott, UK.

The SABER in your link refers to a construction contract at Wright Patterson.

SABRE isn't that more for a SSTO rocket than a fighter engine? I thought it was tech forum the HOTOL program?

Actually it would work just as well for an air breathing platform as an SSTO.

Does the F-35 have (or is planned to have) a common engine bay like for example the F-16 got in the later versions so an ADVENT (type) engine can be placed in during and upgrade? Or does an ADVENT type engine require more significant changes to the airframe? I would think it is just a matter of replacing one with the other aside from some software updates...

That's why they're measuring AETD now to determine if it fits. If it fits in the spaces it's a fairly straightforward swap out.
