Italy and Lockheed developed an improved F-104G, the F-104S (Super). The new variant had an advanced weapons system for AIM-7 missiles, deleted M61 cannon, new engine, stronger airframe, 2 additional ventral fins and 2 additional under wing pylons for AIM-7 missiles. The “S” variant was updated twice, the “ASA” (Aggiornamento Sistema d’Armi meaning Weapon System Update) look-down/shoot-down air-superiority fighter) and the ‘ASA-M’ (Aggiornamento Sistema d’Arma-Modificato, Weapon System Modified). By 1984 electronic miniaturization allowed the ASA update that meant 2/3s of the 205-plane fleet had the cannon re-installed, new navigation systems, avionics and missiles.
