    Why didn't they change the keys to a shorter & smaller key when they did up-gradation of the aircraft ?

    May be it is easier to find the key during emergency.. chances of misplacing it is very small…

    Yes thanks for the keys Mate!! Now why did the upgrade not have finger recognition. Hell, cars have that too.

    Besides can you imagine the huge blip on the enemy's radar thanks to the crappy RCS of that key!

    Only structural upgrades ? There doesn't seem to be any glass cockpit.

    Note the flood lamps on the cieling – they seem to have red colour bulbs for enhancing night vision?
