You are correct, Greg. The block 70/72s are being called F-16V by L-M.

I haven't seen much info on it and nothing that you can call rock solid but it appears that they have ordered blk 70s, although as they currently have blk 52s it wouldn't make sense unless they are upgrading the blk 52s to 70 as well, which one place has speculated.

At the moment I am inclined to think that they will get blk 72s, UNLESS they are upgrading the 52s as it wouldn't make sense to have two different types of engines in small quantities.
