Recommended Posts

I know what thier carrying is always of interest to modelers, here's a good look at a couple F-16s with different loads.

Those Rafales are a good looking aircraft loaded up. May have to buy a couple more Revell kits....

Cool!! Never seen an F-16 with HARM on wing and GBU on the other. Got couple of Tamiya kits and weapons, will be doing something like in this weapon config :)

As you say it is interesting seeing the HARM. Hey, we can call it an F-16G? Probably not since it is a one seater.

By the way, I always find it interesting that on the TERs they do not load the inner mount. Seen that configuration many times and I am guessing it has to do with the way the munition detaches. If it was there, it may hit the load on the next pylon when released. I may be completely off base here though.

F-16's having been carrying HARM's since the 1980's. Nothing new there.

Supposedly the UAE Viper squadron was led by a female, kind of ironic.

Hope she had a burka or at least a head covering on.

Very ironic, not sure about the UAE but I know in Saudi, women can't even drive. I think the other gulf states are a bit more progressive though...

Yes, the but most of the times the HARMs were loaded in pairs. This loadout with AGM-88 on one wing and a pair of JDAMs on the other wing is what makes it interesting.

I believe women pilots traditionally wear helmets.

Looks like all F-16CMs from Misawa - interesting enough that PACAF F-16s are flying with ACC F-22As from Langley and USAFE F-15Es from Lakenheath. By the way these loadouts were also used during the Libyan Air Campaign by Shaw and Spangdelham F-16s.

You know, I totally agree.

I'm not a fan of them although they're nice a/c. But to see them in a loadout; They are awesome looking.

And something about multiple drop tanks makes an a/c look more brutish.

I'm with you; I think a Revellogram Rafale is in my future.

I love Vipers with asymmetric loads, but never seen it with a HARM/JDAM combo.

F-16 is a good example of that. It looks very mean with 2 tanks on

I totally agree.

Heck; Even though it takes the sleek look away, I love the look of the fastpacks on Israeli F-16Is and Greek F-16Ds:
