F-104 ? What are the boxes behind the cockpit

Recommended Posts

What are the boxes in the compartment aft of the cockpit of the F-104? I see it open a lot on photos and even the new Kinetic kit has it as a posable panel. I figure its some type of avionics but is it for the fire control system? Also would a F-104N have the same amount of boxes in that compartment?

Thanks

The front full width box is a circuit breaker panel.  The other “cans” are plug in modules for the various electronic systems, not only radar and fire control, but also communications, flight control, and navigation equipment.  How many “cans” are installed depend on what systems are installed on a particular aircraft.
