Judging from the live video released by Boeing, the aircraft has not changed much in appearance compared to the earlier version of the Super Hornet fighter, and has not installed the previously designed conformal fuel tank.

However, the video highlights the customizable wide-area multi-function display (similar to the single large-size touch screen cockpit display of the F-35 fighter) equipped with the latest version of the "Super Hornet" fighter.
