  1. You can zoom in on this photo: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/6343011 AIM-9L/M would be the common one for the early Eagle. Jari
  2. The GBU-28 was used in Allied Force: https://nara.getarchive.net/media/f-15e-strike-eagle-pilot-and-a-weapon-system-officer-assigned-to-the-494th-aac23f Jari
  3. Here is a monthly report of VMFA-122 for April 1968: https://vva.vietnam.ttu.edu/images.php?img=/images/1201/1201079092.pdf scroll down to pg 6 to see the total amount of ordnance expended that month, including over 15,000 rounds of 20mm using the Mk 4 gun pod. Jari
  4. Tom if you are looking for another cool idea how the A-7Cwith VA-82 during Vietnam in 1972: http://bo-smith.net/bosmemoir/VA821972/A7No3and6.jpg the reasoning for the removal of the inboard pylons can be found here: http://bo-smith.net/bosmemoir/VA821972/ just scroll down a little, he also reports on his missions giving loads. Other loads are here: Jari
  5. Here is a A-7 with a Paveway I LGB at NAs Fallon: http://www.miyf27.com/images/va2722784Fallon.jpg Jari
  6. You can't have 3 drop tanks and 2 Mk43s, pylons have a weight capacity, c/l and inboard ones can carry a good size load, the outboards are limited in stores weight. Scroll down to pg 8 & 9 here: http://www.alternatewars.com/SAC/F-105D-31_Thunderchief_SAC_-_June_1970.pdf to see what can go where. Jari
  7. Here is some Saab Viggen info: the gun pod, which probably is removable if need be: Jari
  8. Here is one, a bit dark which indicates green but if it was grey you would see it: http://www.c-7acaribou.com/album/jsphotos/RF-101_07_Phu_Cat.jpg Jari
  9. Looks like the raised portion is the part that fits onto the fuselage bottom, which PE1 covers: The same F sprue in the G/S kit has a nuke shape which would have been ideal for the CF-104. Jari
  10. The CF-104 sprues and instructions are up: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10860915 the big problem with it is that there is no c/l pylon, the box art shows one, but not in the kit. The CF-104 had it installed 99.9% of the time, especially in Europe, only on test flights were they removed. The instructions says to install the Red Dog launchers and AIM-9s but they were not carried by the CF-104, i only saw a Red Dog launcher once in the back of a storage area, gathering dust. I did see a pic of a Red Dog on a CF-104 but that was when it went down to Sardinia and a ACMI
  11. A few pics here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:2015_at_Bassel_Al-Assad_International_Airport mainly dumb bombs and rocket pods with a pair of fuel tanks. Jari
  12. Here is a side on view that should give you an idea how the MER fit on the pylon: Jari
  13. Not in a B-58 but under it: http://www.britmodeller.com/walkarounds/aircraft/b-58/B-58 001, J-79 engine_resize.JPG http://www.britmodeller.com/walkarounds/aircraft/b-58/B-58 013_resize.JPG Jari
  14. Here are some specs on the F-105G, the F would be the same: http://www.alternatewars.com/SAC/F-105G_Thunderchief_CS_-_November_1972.pdf The F-105F was used in combat in Vietnam so there is no reason why it would not be used to carry nukes if the situation arose. Jari
