This F-16 SOC radar..
Does that mean that it has the radar software on 'flash rom/ram' / rom chip..
(something like AMIGAs haviving KICKSTART on a ROM CHIP..?)
Also Serbs possibly having JAS 39s..
That would good..
about IAI F-16 ACE:
(i did a babelfish traslation on it..)
During May 2001 of year successfully completed its first flight F -16, improved by the consortium of?Israyeli Defense Of industriyes?.Program is
achieved under the management/manual of?Airchraft Of industriyes ' Layuav Division?and it?Elbit System?.Takeoff did take place on the territory of
the flying test center of?Israyeli To defense Of industriyes?locating in the international airport of?Ben Of gurion?in Israel.After additional test
flights F -16 it flew to France in order to be shown on Parisian aviasalone 2001 of year.
The first flight was perfected after the completion of the last stage of modernization, which included installation on the prototype F -16 ACHE
(Avionichs Of chapabilitiyes Of enyuanchement) of the new systems of avionics, developed?IAI/LAYuAV's System Of integration Of laboratory?.this task
was executed by pilots, system engineers and programmers OF?IAI/LAYUAV?and it?Elbit System?.Pilots testers are struck by a considerable increase in
the possibilities, allowed by new display and avionics.Initial avionics F -16 was created in 1970- X years.
Close collaboration between the military producers of Israel, collaboration from?Lochkyueyed Martin?- by creator F -16 aid from the side of the
Israeli ministries of defense and Finance they did make possible implementation of the program F -16 ACHE. the park F -16 of Israeli VVS he is the
first candidate for the participation in the program F -16 ACHE. besides?IAI/LAYUAV?and it?Elbit System?in the program took part IAI/Elta Of
elechtronichs, Eat- op, Astronautichs, Rafayel, Rada, IAI/MLM, Israyel Of military Of industriyes, To syuayuam Of elechtronichs, Rokar, and orbits.
The final prototype F -16 ACHE reflects enormous the progress in the technologies of avionics, which occurred in recent years.The new complete set of
avionics is compared with the fact that it is established/installed today on the foremost destroyers.The pilots F -16 ACHE will reveal and identify
targets/purposes with the aid of the radar and systems of the fire control of?IAI/Elta Of el/m-20e2?.this foremost SAR radar has the salient
capabilities on working/treatment of the ground-based and aerial targets.
In F -16 ACHE of target/purpose the necessary information is mapped onto the echo of shch"kh"" the colored displays, which create by?polnost'yu
glass cab?,which will be established/installed on all acting F -16. Shirokogradusnyy YUUD developed Eat- op it projects information for the
glazing.However, in the pilots F -16 ACHE there will be alternative YUUD?the display, installed into the helmet, developed Yelbit.
For the purpose to reduce load on the pilot, new front control board (UFCHP) with the integral display is arranged/located directly before the pilot._
with use (UFCP) reduce to minimum number action, necessary for data input, reading communication and control system aircraft.this?druzhestvennaya for
the user?panel is only one example of the fact that F -16 ACHE has the optimized interface the?celovek- machine?,based on the wide experience,
acquired by Israeli pilots during the use of different foremost combat aircraft.
The information, obtained by the sensors F -16 ACHE, just as the information, obtained from the external sensors, is processed by powerful/thick
onboard computer and is derived/concluded to the new displays.And onboard computer and displays are developed in Israel.
Avionics F -16 ACHE has the?otkrytuyu architecture?,which means that the new sensors (internal and external), data links and existing and promising
weapon systems can be added without a change in the equipment ("the plow of Andes Play").Changes will be necessary only in software.
Sensors with the high possibilities, such as Litening hearth, developed Rafayel, YESH of system, the foremost systems of communications and
communications, developed Of iAI's LAYUAV, MLM Of divisions and Rafayel;the moving map/chart/card, and internal navigation system with built-in GPS,
developed Yelbit System's Of digital they do compose only the part of avionics, which will be established/installed during the modification F -16
ACHE F -16 ACHE it can be equipped with different weapon systems, which compose?slivki?the combat arsenal of Israel:Litening hearth, Yelta's YESH
hearth, the large 600 gallonovye external fuel tanks, developed Of israyel Of military Of industriyes, bomb with the laser guidance, URVP Are popeye
from Rafayel and air-to-air missile Of pytyuon IV.
The staggering aerodynamic possibilities F -16, which make it possible for pilots to use aggressive style of control of aircraft, made necessary
introduction also of structural changes.Thus the program Of falchon-Up and the additional structures of change, achieved BY IAI/LAYUAV, are the
component parts of the program of modernization.The modernization F -16 ACHE will be supplied to users with comprehensive logistic support both for
the original packet, supplied Of lochkyueyed Martin and by new avionics, by sensors and by weapon systems.
Intensive flight test program, will make it possible to certify F -16 ACHE and will make possible to initiate the program of series modernization
during 2002 years.It is expected that the cost/value of the series modernization F -16 ACHE will be substantially lower than in competitors, and
combat capabilities will be excellent.
1) Layuav -> Lahav
2) Parisian aviasalone -> Paris airshow
3) ACHE -> ACE (Avionics Capabilities Enhancement..)
4) pytyuon IV -> Puthon IV
5) lochkyueyed Martin -> Lockheed Martin
F-16B s/n 4X-ACE - IDF/AF - June 2001, with Rafael Python 4 (lower) and Derby AAMs.
Some rock bottom AAMs there, especially Python IV!
Derby most likely is also very good.. But has not yet been used in gombat..
And reason why i post this info about IAI F-16 ACE is:
These F-16 ACE aircraft are most capable F-16s around to day..
(something that has been said in AirForces monthly and AirInternational magazines..)
And these are modified F-16 A/Bs..
