Hi latest iteration can carry AMRAAM and the necessary radar.
Can the DB be updated?

Yup. Until all the new F-15SG's are here, we only have a few on the island. We upgraded the F-5E to F-5S with BVR capabilities. Who knows when the F-35 will materialize. :)
Also the Air Force justified that the F-5's are very hard to notice within Visual Range dog fights due to it's size.

Speaking of F-5´s, Brazils F-5EM/FM need Python 4/ Derby Loadout and removal of one of the guns.

quote:

Weapons: After the upgrades, F-5 EM/FM fighters can carry a wider range of weapons, including RAFAEL’s Derby beyond visual range air-air missiles, Brazilian Piranha and Israeli and Python short range air-air missiles, and laser-guided bombs. In exchange, they lose 1 of their 2 initial 20mm cannons.

They also say she can carry an ARM.

Do you have more info on the F-5S update? Cannot find any evidence of AMRAAM being operational, etc.

Thanks!

Hey Ragnar... Cannot get it to link here, but Air Forces Monthly Magazine from March 2011 indicates they have been fitted to be compatible with the AIM-120.. as well as wiki here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_F-5#cite_note-FSRSAF-22 Although neither one says it is actually operational per se.

Can add the radar etc, but leave the AMRAAM out.

No worries. I haven't seen any pictures with the planes carrying the AIM-120's at the moment.

Ha, that's okay. Rumor has it Singapore has more F-15SGs that its publicly announced.

Aren't those some of the coolest little jets, ever? I've loved them ever since they came out. I think they still use them as adversaries in Fallon or somewhere out there.

Yes the US Navy uses them as adversary jets in fighter training.
