    any news on the F-35s radar ?

    an exactly APG-79 AESA ?

    an APG-79 AESA with low powerfull and so on less longer range ?

    RE: any news on the F-35s radar ?

    I have heard most recently that it will be based upon the APG-73, but will be fitted obviously with the AESA antenna. Sounds like the APG-79? Sure does, and it could be the same set with only minor differences. If so this would go along way toward USN fleet commonality.

    However, originally, as I believed from reading early in the programme, I got the impression that it was to be a mini-APG-77 based upon the same technology but downsized and not as powerful.

    Exact clarification would be nice.

    Regards, Glenn.

    Have heard it is the APG-79 (APG-73 RUG III), more or less an APG-73 with an AESA antenna.
