Dry the tears -- as far as I know the plan is still to replace them with a modified J-model. Higher available power, higher speed, and brand new
airframes. It'll still be armed with at least one Bushmaster and will get the upgraded precision strike systems for SDB (small diameter bombs) and
the Griffin -- and there was talk of arming them with the Hellfire, ala Harvest Hawk. Should be ready for flight testing in the next month or so and
ready for service by the time they mothball the older E's and H's.
