<summary>Hypothetical F35 upgrades in Blocks 4 (pre-2030) & 5 (post-2030)</summary>

<detail>



A multitude of upgrades have been either planned or proposed for the F35 under Blocks 4 and 5. These include:

- RAAF F35A armed with JSM – the missile is being co-developed with Australian input
- 6 x JSM (2 x JSM internally plus 4 x JSM externally) + 2 x internal AMRAAM/JATM
- 2 x external LRASM + 6 x internal AMRAAM/JATM
- 2 x external JASSM-ER + 6 x internal AMRAAM/JATM
- Mixed loads of JSM, LRASM, JASSM-ER, AARGM-ER and AMRAAM/JATM
- 2 x 600gal external fuel tanks for ~40% greater range (sacrifices inner pylons and RCS, at least until jettisoned)
- New variable bypass engine (eg. XA101 or XA100 for Blk 5 jets) for greater thrust and ~35% more range (over the current baseline)

<type>Update</type>

<summary>Update LRPF facility_3268 and facility_3267 </summary>

<detail>
Currently each LRPF launcher has a capacity of 12 LRPF missiles and this is incorrect. It would be a maximum of 2 missiles in the case of a HIMARS launcher or 4 in the case of an MLRS (2 missiles per magazine).





As a suggestion, the US Army's LRPF version should be remodeled as a MLRS battery (Facility_3268) with more firepower versus the USMC's HIMARS (Facility_3267).

<type>Update</type>

<summary> Update australian EA-18G Growler with ATFLIR and AIM-9X loadouts </summary>

<detail>


“One of the things you see on our aeroplane is an ATFLIR and an AIM-9X. That was one of the lessons that the Navy learnt,” Brown told journalists after the ceremony. “We’re the only ones that have got that capability and I suspect the US Navy will follow very quickly.”



Not all loadouts will probably carry AIM-9x but it is interesting as it can be combined well with light ECM loadouts by mounting the AIM9x on the outer pylons.



On the other hand the introduction of ATFLIR limits the ability to carry two aim-120 on most loadouts.

<summary> Update Saar 6 (Ship_3224) to have a maximum speed of 24 knots </summary>

<detail>

The Jerusalem Post reports the new Saar 6 has a max speed of 24 knots. While 2 knots slower than the 26 knot Braunschweig-class corvette that the ship is based on, this discrepancy may be the result of the slightly increased displacement and draft of the vessel over its Braunschweig-class predecessor. https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/saar-6-the-new-backbone-of-israels-navy-for-decades-to-come-analysis-648788.

<summary>Incomplete F/A-18 Block III short-range JSOW-ER loadout</summary>

<detail>Loadout #27342 - AGM-154 JSOW-ER, ATFLIR [FLIR], Short-Range (Standoff Strike, Land/Naval) for F/A-18E/F Block III only has two JSOW-ERs equipped. Add two more JSOW-ERs to the loadout, for a total of four glide bombs, like the other short-range JSOW loadouts.</detail>


<type>Update</type>

<summary>Missing internal loadout tags for six AMRAAM F-35C loadout</summary>

<detail>#27222 - A/A: AIM-120D AMRAAM, Internal (Air Superiority, BVR AAMs) for 2023+ F-35Cs (#4872, #4873, #3836, #4874) don't have an internal tag for the six internal AMRAAMs. Change it to have the tag, like the six JATM internal loadout.

Also suggest to remove loadout #10098 of four internal AMRAAMs of the affected aircraft.</detail>

<detail>#3835 - F-35FA (2025), #3836 - F-35C (2025), #4874 - F-35C (2028) all have external AARGM-ER loadouts only. Add internal only option of two AMRAAM/JATM + two AARGM-ERs, and change the external AARGM-ER loadout to have two internal AMRAAM/JATM + two external AIM-9X + two internal AARGM-ER + two external AARGM-ER (+ gunpod) </detail>

<summary>Questionable ASM HAWC performance</summary>

<detail>#3663 - ASM HAWC has its speed way off from being in the hypersonic range. The DB only has it topping at 1,600 knots (Mach 2.79). The full capability of the weapon may not be clear for now, but at least change the speed to be able to go at least Mach 5, like the name implies.</detail>


<type>Update</type>

<summary>Sayyad-4 missile incorrect sensors</summary>

<detail>#3625 - Sayyad-4 incorrectly uses an ARH seeker that has a massive range. I assume this is just a DB error as it seems the onboard sensor is the vehicle FCR of #3229 - Bavar-373 SAM. Change the missile seeker to SARH.</detail>

<summary>Update JSOW C-1 (Weapon_3042) and JSOW-ER (Weapon_3595) with the ability to retarget in flight </summary>

<detail>
The weapon is a modification to the existing JSOW C, which adds a weapon datalink radio and modified seeker software to increase capability for the anti-surface warfare mission.
Units will use JSOW C-1 to conduct attacks against moving maritime targets and have the ability to retarget weapons post launch.



JSOW ER too:

The JSOW ER retains the current shape and form of JSOW C-1, minimizing fleet integration costs while providing the warfighter with the capability to engage moving maritime targets as well as stationary land targets at an extended range. The weapon also maintains JSOW C-1's datalink radio and modified seeker software for significant capability in the anti-surface warfare mission.

Dimensions of MQ-25.
This is not to pick numbers, but does this affect how many can operate of a carrier?

Length:15.54m (is now 11.63m)
Wingspan 22.86m (is now 18.93m)
Wingspan folded 9.45m (not in DB yet)
Height: 3.38m & 4.78m when folded (does not really matter).

Though the "Oron" looks similar to the "Eitam", its systems are more advanced and allow for a wider range of missions. "The big improvement is in its overall capabilities and diversity of the tasks it can perform", says Maj. I. https://iaf.org.il/9327-52847-en/IAF.aspx

The “Oron” received today appears to be a new variant of the G550. “The aircraft combines several capabilities including aerial imaging, control and radar, and maritime intelligence gathering for the Navy”, explains Maj. I, Deputy Commander of the 122nd Squadron. “The majority of these capabilities already exist in our squadron and the ‘Maof Rahav’ unit, however, with the new aircraft, we managed to condense them all onto a single flight platform”.

Externally, the “Oron” is similar to the “Eitam”, the G550 CAEW. This is a sort of mini-AWACS equipped with 2 L-band antennas, on both sides of the fuselage, and 2 S-band antennas, on the nose and tail of the aircraft. The antennas are part of a EL/W-2085, a Phalcon and Green Pine (used for the Arrow Anti-Tactical Ballistic Missile Missile, ATBMM) derivative. However, its systems are more advanced and allow for a wider range of missions, says the IAF on its website. “The big improvement is in its overall capabilities and diversity of the tasks it can perform”, says Maj. I. “The aircraft combines the capabilities of the ‘Eitam’ and the ‘Shavit’, reconnaissance aircraft from the Fighter Division, and advanced air-to-surface radar.

I suspect the meeting to decide on the "new" name was quite short?

<summary>K-1200 K-MAX Helicopter (CQ-24A)>
<detail>
The CQ-24A is an American unmanned cargo helicopter that was trialed from 2011-2014 in Afghanistan. After it was determined their capabilities were no longer needed in Afghanistan, the Marine Corps elected to keep the helicopters in storage pending future requirements and for use in future cargo UAV testing programs. This time came in 2019 when Kaman was awarded a contract to reactivate the two stored CQ-24A's, specifically for use in the Advanced Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System program.

The K-1200 K-MAX is the manned variant of the helicopter the CQ-24A was developed from, it's used extensively in the civilian world for heavy cargo lift and firefighting operations (although in the past some have been contracted for cargo operations for the American navy on an ad-hoc basis). Five were also exported to Colombia in 2002 for use in counter-narcotics operations. The first production run helicopters entered service in 1991 and were produced until 2003. They continue to serve today and Kaman restarted production in 2015 due to an influx of orders (with the most recent order being placed on 1/20/21).

Both the CQ-24A and the civilian variants of the K-1200 share the same powerplant, top speed, lift weight, dimensions, and fuel stores. The powerplant in question is one Honeywell T53-17A-1, producing 1,800 horsepower and a top speed of 100 knots (80 knots when carrying cargo). Said powerplant consumes fuel at a rate of 4.215 kilograms per minute and the helicopters have a fuel capacity of 699 kilograms. They also have a maximum lift weight of 3,109 kg (2,722 kg if the cargo is sling loaded) and an empty weight of 2,334 kg. Their length is 18.85m, their width is 15.67m, and they have a height of 4.14m. Furthermore, the CQ-24A and the Colombian military variants should have the "Night-Navigation" trait, as the Columbian Military does have Night Vision pilot optics and the CQ-24A is an autonomous vehicle that can fly a preprogrammed route using its instrumentation rather than by observation.

Now for the differences between the K-1200 and the CQ-24A. The K-1200 has a crew of one, while the CQ-24A is unmanned (operating through a LOS or satellite datalink). As a result, the CQ-24A shouldn't have the "Mk1 Eyeballs" sensor. Information about the specific sensors on the CQ-24As deployed to Afghanistan is quite limited, however based what has been released and the exterior of the aircraft, there was the presence of an HD camera for landing guidance. By 2020 one of the aircraft had also been upgraded with a LIDAR sensor for fully autonomous landing. The CQ-24A also does not appear to have any DECM or countermeasure launchers, being manufactured with the intention of operating in the low threat environment of Afghanistan (although if you decide to also implement a hypothetical variant set in the future, countermeasures would most likely be added on).

The loadout for both aircraft would be:
#2259 Cargo [Air Drop, 3 Tons] with the name indicating it is a slung load.

<summary>Add S-75 Dvina/SA-2 Guideline based Ballistic Missiles used by PRC, Iran, Houthis>
<detail>
DF-7/Dongfeng 7/M-7/Project 8610/CSS-8
Chinese surface-to-surface tactical ballistic missile converted from HQ-1/2/3/4. M-7 missile is the only Chinese ballistic missile that can be launched at a slant angle. The rear section of the HQ SAMs are retained, but the forward half is greatly enlarged into a shuttle shape to house bigger warhead and more fuel, while the control surfaces on the forward section are deleted. Armed with a 500 kg warhead (two and half a time of that of the original SAM version) the maximum range of M-7 is 200 km (more than four times of that of the original SAM version).

Qaher-1
The Qaher-1 is originally a Soviet SA-2 missile that was developed locally by the Houthis to be a surface to surface missile that works on two stages, liquid fuel and solid fuel. It was unveiled in December 2015. The Houthis have fired many Qaher-1's into Saudi Arabia during the course of the Yemeni Civil War.

Update for this request. I just realized the DF-7/Dongfeng 7/M-7/Project 8610/CSS-8 for Iran is already in the DB as DB #3241. Please add to PRC as "DF-7/Dongfeng 7/M-7/Project 8610/CSS-8" and Terrorists (Houthi)s as "Qaher-1, Modified SA-2."
