Unless I’m mistaken, the pilots say the block 30 has better sustained turn performance and is a slightly better dogfighter. Block 50 put on a little weight IIRC.

An Air National Guard Block 42+

Not as heavy as a Block 50/52, but with the power of a Block 52 with that newer PW-229 engine.

On paper has a higher thrust to weight ration of any of the C models. :devil:
