Modernization of the US armed forces includes not only the creation of modern devices but also modernization of well-proven old fighters, bombers and other devices.

For example, according to military plans, the B-52 bomber should fly until the 2040s. Similarly, the U.S. Navy and US Marine Corps intend to deal with the F/A-18 tactical fighters by upgrading them so they can defeat the fourth-generation fighters.

Boeing has already completed the upgrade of the F/A-18 Super Hornet Block III and is preparing to deploy it to the US Navy shortly.

In addition to its ability to defeat fourth-generation targets, the upgraded fighter will have an extended service life from 6,000 to 7,500 flight hours.
