I am building the Modelcollect B-52G kit and I have read the long topic about the -H. I am ready to improve at least the tail, the forward area and the strakelets.
As I want to make one of the 7 CALCM equipped "Secret Squirrel" aircraft for the January 17th, 1991 mission I have some questions.
- There were 5 or 6 CALCM for each B-52G : so where do they be carried under the 6 position dedicated launch pylon? Three in front or another combination for each side?
- I have seen the pylon without any C/ALCM and the least I can say is that is not a flat area. So, are there some plate to improve aerodynamics when there is not any C/ALCM mounted?
- Finally, when the rotary launcher in the bomb bay was not used, could it be replaced by some sort of fuel tank to improve the range?
