FTA:

“The advanced cockpit system (ACS) takes the legacy displays of the Block II and puts them all into one big touchscreen piece of glass that’s almost like an iPad interface for the pilot,” Tebo explains.”

Video Games for Naval Aviators who will have some very real ‘skin’ in the game.

Fly Navy!!!

From National Interest mag:

The Block III Super Hornet aircraft incorporates a host of new capabilities ranging from an upgraded 9000-hour airframe, new range-extending conformal fuel tanks (~120 nautical mile boost in mission radius), radar cross-section improvements, enhanced satellite communications, to a new advanced cockpit display system. But the two most significant developments are the addition of the Distributed Targeting Processor-Networked (DTP-N) computer—which exponentially increases the Super Hornet’s processing power—and the high-speed, high-bandwidth, high-throughput anti-jam Internet Protocol-based Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) datalink.

A 9000 hour airframe? Worth knowing more about it.

A far cry from the CRTs in the F-4. Heads-up display looks like it does more than just the gunsight..and they still have the whiskey compass.
