Air Force Won’t Replace JSTARS Fleet: It looks like the Air Force can’t afford to replace it’s fleet of E-8 Join...

So, the E-8 won't get replaced by the cancelled RQ-4 Reaper. Pity. Boeing has "proposed" developing a P-8 for the job, but they're already spending a lot on their own programs, and if the gov't won't be paying for the replacement, there isn't much incentive for them. A report from Defenseindustrydaily.com stated that they planned to refurbish the E-8's to last another 40-50 years, starting with those awful fuel-gulping engines, but the plan hasn't been given the full go-ahead yet. There is a testbed E-8 that was recosntructed with the proposed modifications, and it works well. Question is will the Air Force jump on board? The re-up will cost "…$2.7 billion: $900M re-engining, $500M for new APY-7 receiver and exciters, $1 billion for a cheek array, $300M for avionics upgrade and battle management improvements." http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/Re-engining-t…
