Mike, better explanation then the one I got while working with the EAF in the late 90s. We were told the orange was due to mid-airs, which seemed at the time silly to me.

It is just the same reason that the Israeli Mirages and Kfirs had big orange/black triangles on them so that in combat they could see if they were friends or foes - a quick check to see if they were Egyptian/Libyan/Lebanese Mirages or not. The Israeli Kfirs dropped them when their neighbours stopped flying Mirages.

They only have 20x Block 52s. All the others are Block 40 or earlier. Those versions haven't been created yet.

Hello

I red that morocco will receive twelve new
Single seat F-16V Block 52.

So they should have 35 F16 at the end.
They already have 15x F-16C and 8x F-16D

Looks like Morocco, India, and Bahrain are Block 70 F-16 customers.

Externally the ony differenrce 'may be' the availabilty of a triple rail AIM-120 launcher. So it could carry 10 AA-Missiles!
Internally looks like a change in the cockpit instrument panel, adds a Central Pedestal Display.

Anyone see any other differences?

At the end of october 2018 there was an airshow in Marrakech in morocco.

On a RMAF F16 display they wrote that the F16 is Block 52 plus.

So did RMAF chang current config of their F16?
They did not have a plus variation for their Block 52 if i am not wrong.

I am asking because moroccan F16 should be released next for WSMG model.

RMAF have always had the F-16C/D Block 52+ models. The "+" means they can carry conformal fuel tanks, have upgraded engines and have better offensive and defensive capabilities.

We are working on the RMAF Vipers as I type this.

Working on some other things too! 180th FW, Ohio ANG. Most of their birds are now painted with the HG-V scheme. Toledo's jets are Bk42 F-16CM's with the hot rod motors, F100-PW-229's in them. Note the almost black 'turkey feathers' of the exhaust nozzle, made of carbon fiber.

As UAEF is planning to upgrade their F16 fleet to block 72 if i am not wrong, will you make an update of the UAEF pack?

Yes the F-16V's are externally unchanged from the latest versions so there's not much work to do other than make the paints and update the cockpit displays. Maybe a few new antennas in there as well but overall, very little work to make those new block versions.
