Typical load for the Early SU-27 guidance

Recommended Posts

I know Soviet aircraft, but I don't know their weps...

 

I have the original update set from Chris, i.e, intakes, canopy, and nose cone I bought YEARS ago.

 

I plan to get the missile rails, stinger, and required missiles from Chris.

 

Which missiles are a typical load-out for an early Soviet SU-27?

 

Wing tip missiles, or the pods?

 

I already have the Aries Cockpit, Wolfpack wheel wells, and North Star engine cans and turkey feathers.

What is a typical loadout? I suppose that all depends on the mission.
Most pics, when carrying anything, show a pair of Archers on the wing pylons and a couple of Alamos on the centerline (usually Alamo-C, sometimes A).
A fuller load might include a pair of Alamo-Bs on the wings.
Wingtips and intakes seem to be the last stations filled.
The Su-27 is capable of carrying any combination of Alamo missiles so long as the type is balanced left-to-right.
A good full loadout would be 4 Alamo-C (centerline and intakes), 2 Alamo-B and 4 Archers. This is the loadout I chose to use on my Flanker artwork:

Here are some less common loadouts:

Thanks for the guidance

 

Alamo C on the intakes, or the belly?

In my comments above I refer to the belly as "centerline".

So yes, the belly is almost always loaded with Alamo-C, sometimes Alamo-A.
