The Tranche 1 aircraft have already used Paveway II operationally, but this will soon be out of service in the RAF. There is little that would prohibit Paveway IV being integrated on the early aircraft, other than money.
Keeping the tranche 1's as an air defence platform is a bit of a guff option, it wont get the new radar, or Meteor, making it a much less capable aircraft.
Yes, I know that RAF don't use them, I just wanted to sad that they CAN use them.
So, they CAN use Paveway 2? And have used them?
So they have Litening integrated or have to get laser ilumination from another source?
