During the period in question, maneuverability was enhanced by relaxed static stability , made possible by introduction of the fly-by-wire (FBW) flight control system (FLCS), which in turn was possible due to advances in digital computers and system-integration techniques. Replacement of analog avionics, required to enable FBW operations, became a fundamental requirement as legacy analog computer systems began to be replaced by digital flight control systems in the latter half of the 1980s. [1]

The further advance of microcomputers in the 1980s and 1990s permitted rapid upgrades to the avionics over the lifetimes of these fighters, incorporating system upgrades such as active electronically scanned array (AESA), digital avionics buses and infra-red search and track (IRST).

The United States defines 4.5-generation fighter aircraft as fourth-generation jet fighters that have been upgraded with AESA radar, high-capacity data-link, enhanced avionics, and "the ability to deploy current and reasonably foreseeable advanced armaments". [4] [5] Contemporary examples of 4.5-generation fighters are the Sukhoi Su-35 , the Shenyang J-11D / J-15B / J-16 , the Chengdu J-10B/C , the Mikoyan MiG-35 , the Eurofighter Typhoon , the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet , the Boeing F-15SE Silent Eagle , the General Dynamics F-16E/F Block 60 , the Saab JAS 39 Gripen and the Dassault Rafale .
