апрель все, следов апдейта по блоку 4 пока нет
Block 4 capabilities are delivered through software upgrades, enabling hardware modifications, integration of new weapons, and upgrades to off-board systems. Operational Flight Program (OFP) software updates will be developed on a 6 month cadence and will include incremental delivery of hardware development timelines. Block 4 capabilities will require new Electronic Warfare (EW) and Communications, Navigation, and Identification (CNI), hardware configurations, increased computing capacity provided by Tech Refresh 3 (TR-3) hardware, and Air Vehicle changes to the weapons bay and cooling system. Each of the Block 4 upgrades addresses advancing threats while expanding and improving mission capabilities. Beginning in Calendar Year 2022, Block 4 capabilities will require modernization of existing development aircraft currently configured with TR-2 legacy hardware to TR-3. TR-3 replaces the legacy Integrated Core Processor (ICP), Panoramic Cockpit Display (PCD), and Aircraft Memory System (AMS) providing the necessary processing and storage capabilities to realize the full benefit of all Block 4 capabilities while allowing growth for added future capabilities. The production cut-in of TR-3 will occur during Lot 15 in Calendar Year 2023.
