Hi, new member here. I am doing a research about the SCU software upgrade programs for the F-16C/D Block 30 globally.

AFAIK, there are 7 SCU. (SCU-1, SCU-1 PLUS, SCU-2, SCU-3, SCU-4, SCU-5, SCU-6).

I found some info for the SCU-3 onwards, however I could not find any info about SCU-1, SCU-1 PLUS and SCU-2.

In addition I would appreciate if someone elaborate a bit more on the F-204 software of the AN/APG-68(V)2 and the F-402 Block 4 upgrade one for the same radar version.

Hello Anderson and welcome

PLease note that these types of questions - specially from new members - tend to be viewed with suspicion, even if you intentions aren`t.

This is a very old thread and I wanted to revive it in some way. As we all know the older block 25/30/32 were first foreseen to receive the CUPID program. When that deal fell through a minor update program 'SCU' was initiated. This also contains a number of versions as stated before. I'm not interested in capabilities that go with certain SCU's (although these are in the public domain certainly for SCU-7 onwards). But it would be nice to know how many airframes were included in these SCU's.

What I found so far is that SCU-7 included 113 block 25's and 319 block 30/32's. SCU-9 includes a total of 335 of block 25/30/32's.

If anyone also knows in which SCU the introduction of the APX-113 AIFF systems falls, that would be great too, unless this is a separate program not affiliated with the SCU program all together.
