    A flight of six F-16 Dutch planes to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was launched on Wednesday. The total number of aircrafts is 15 .. so still 9 to go..
    The MLU 6.5 had delayed delivery because of updates made to the aircraft has been developed into the latest software model in Europe M6.5 tape.. which includes:

    • Rectification of some earlier weapon integration shortcomings
    • Integration of new weapons (JASSM, JDAM, EGBU-12, SDB, AIM-120D and AIM-9X)
    • Integration of advanced racks (BRU-69), pylons, adapters and the UAI (ensuring nuclear surety and compatibility)
    • Update of the Link-16 protocol
    • Upgrade of the AN/AAQ-14 interface software
    • Update of the AN/ALR-56M system
    • Update of the GPS system

    Do you think Jordan needs a fifth gen fighter in the future to replace F-16? I mean like 20-30 year future.

    Now my most important thing is to bring in a fighter from the East, Russian, Chinese or even Pakistani Thander Block 3 to the American F-16 to give Jordan more flexibility in operations and so that Jordan can carry out operations outside the umbrella of the US-led International Anti-Terrorism Alliance Royal Jordanian Air Force

    These fighters are NATO fighters, original versions of NATO! Arming the entire, the most important what is currently lacking is:

    Pod LANTIRN AN / AAQ-13
    AGM-88 Harm
    GBU-39
    A AIM-120 / D
    AIM-9 / X
    CBU Bomb
    Cruise missiles

    The best F-16s older than Block 52 is the Netherlands' ones, all upgraded to the MLU-6.5 which is equivalent to the Viper and above the BLOCK-52 !! But still uses the AN/APG-68(V)9 which has a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) capability..it is the same radar used by the BLOCK-52+
