To the more observant members, any particular lumps and bumps added to/ missing from this version compared to the USAF model?
I'd look myself but I've got a migraine.

Two interesting things I noticed looking at the pics. You guys are still using wire antennas, which is surprising. I thought those were gone by now. My father spent years trying to get them replaced, until finally CINCPACAF and CINCPACFLT were flying together, and were listening to each other talk on the radio, when one was on HF, and one was on SATCOM, because of the bleedover.
The other thing is that in the picture on the right side of the aircraft, there is a black square on the bottom of #3. Only that one, and only on that one picture that I can see.

I was reading about using the wire antenna for a DF system, which was replaced with a series of antennas instead. There were a couple of antenna upgrades done, including I believe the one on top of the HF antenna on the tail.
