No, there is not much detail about Blk short of the Norway docs.

At SDD IOC (Blk 3) the F-35 can carry 14 AAMs (Internal and External). What else could the "Six AAMs" of Blk 5 refer to but internal?

Any updates on when this loadout will happen?

External weapons are .... What is missing from that graphic are the SIX internal missiles. Oops I see you got that already.

FWIW the Norwegian 2008 Block Upgrade Plan from: http://norway.usembassy.gov/root/pdfs/v ... _dista.pdf

Just hadn't seen them carry the double MRLs yet and was wondering when that'll happen.

There is a post here somewhere where a LM employee verified that the 14 AAM loadout (12 AMRAAM & 2 9x) was a Block 3F capability.

Should be no problem externally at all. Weight and drop tests already confirmed...a number of years ago.

could you imagine 14 a-a missles for a DCA Vul?

I would go out 12x2..... I always hated being skosh. especially with a 9M.......thats where i "code 3" it as a limfac on the taxi out and i magically get another slammer
