CCIP and block 40/42

The idea behind CCIP is to bring the Block 40/42 and 50/52 jets to a common standard. 




This is true. I just thought the IFF was some how different with the 40/42, at least until I kept on seeing photos of it popping up.  I just wonder why it took so long for that modification to show up on them.

If you're building in 1/72 scale Wolfpak has markings for the OK Guard.  LINK



Hey Murphy where did you shoot those photos at?   I saw those. I was thinking about buying those. I was hoping that tamiya would come out with a 25/32 kit so I could kit bash it with a 50 and use the eduard photo set for the hud to get a 42. Might be waiting a while though. We will see

In fact, it's a post-CCIP upgrade.

BAe Systems was awarded a contract to supply 336 Mode-5 capable AN/APX-125(V) Advanced IFF to the USAF in April 2013.

The installation on Block 40/42 Vipers was scheduled to be completed by May 2015.


Externally, the older AN/APX-113(V) and the AN/APX-125(V) are virtually identical.

Lovely build I must say. Captures the look of the have glass pretty well!  How did you get it to look like that?
