    Only the 145 "Hornet" Sqn F-16 Block 52+ Fighting Falcons are capable of being mounted with the CFTs. I heard that they had been modified to the Israeli F-16I Sufa specifications with Elbit Systems, Rafael, IAI/Elta avionics module.

    I, on the other hand, feels that the F-16D Block 52 Plus looks pretty awesome with the beefed up appearance, practically a CJ/DJ model on steroids.

    Anybody like to hazard a guess on where the new F-15SG squadron will be based at? Tengah Airbase (WSAT) or Changi Airbase (East)? Hopefully it will be the the former.

    No worries bro, nothing beats seeing the USAF Thunderbirds first hand.

    The Tiger IIs probably still have a couple of years or a decade left in their lifespan before being retired, probably in time for the F-35 Lighting II.

    Not exactly, the KC-130B and C-130H/KC-130H Hercules are purchased second-hand back in 1977 and mid-1980s respectively and some of them had just recently undergone a service-life extension program with primarily the avionics being modernised by Singapore Technology Aerospace. Still no sign of any impending retirement for these decades-old workhorses.

    Not to mention that the KC-135R Stratotankers are also purchased second-hand and was originally the KC-135A variant (with the first aircraft delivered in June 1957), it was upgraded under the Pacer CRAG (Compass, Radar And GPS) program, re-engined with CFM56-2B series high-bypass turbofans and equipped with Boeing Multi-Point Refuelling System (MPRS) before being delivered to the RSAF 112 Sqn on 1999.09.10.
