"Block 70/72"

Either 70 or 72. So which one is it?

Not seen anything conclusive on that yet.

No word on whether it will be the GE -135 engines or the older -120s equipping the F16-V

GE-135 is for the F-35A, so for sure not that engine. It will likely be PW100-220E as this is what most European users use.

Surely for a new build it will either be a GE -129 or a PW -229.

Yes PW-229 or GE-129 advertised for new builds - the only GE-132 seen was part of Indias Block 70 / F-21 proposal.
