Goodrich has won a $72 million contract to provide Pakistan with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance pods and related items for its Lockheed Martin F-16 fighters.

The main component of the deal comprises five dual-band DB-110 pods, says the US Department of Defense.

According to Goodrich, the DB-110 reconnaissance sensor provides three independent optical fields of view, allowing it to perform the following ISR missions: long-range stand-off, medium-range oblique and overflight, and low-altitude direct overflight.

The deal also includes two datalink upgrades to existing pods, plus ground stations, spares, manuals, in-country installation and engineering support.

"This supports a Foreign Military Sale programme and Pakistani F-16 aircraft," says the DoD. At this time, $17.3 million of the total value has been obligated, it adds.

F-16, best damn MRF ever (and yet to be eclipsed):

You can always tell super secret military HW because it shows up on the 2nd or *gasp* 3rd page of Google or Yahoo image searches. The black ops stuff shows up on like page 40:

I would show you what is on page 40 but who has the patience for that?
