What's this practice bomb rack called?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently researching F-84F weapons, mainly in Dutch air force service (RNLAF). One item that puzzled me quite badly is this  practice bomb rack. I found only reference to it, and there it's called a R-3. I *think* that this simple design evolved somewhat later, for use on the German and possibly Belgian air forces, with an aerodynamic fairing at the front, and possibly a stepped carriage for the front and rear bombs. But that's about all I found. Anyone?? Thanks in advance!

As an addition to the above: I compared the dimensions of the AF/B37K-1 as listed in the O-2 manual to the German and Belgian practice bomb carriers in the Daco 1/48 F-104 set, and they match pretty well. I'm a happy modeler :thumbsup:
