AGM-65 Maverick in DS 1 question

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a 174th NYANG F-16 in the first days of the war when they carried the Pave Claw gun pod. From what I can tell, they carried an ECM pod on one pylon and an AGM-65 on the opposite pylon. What I haven't been able to discern is if it was a single missile or if it had the triple mounted rack. Thanks for any help.

I'm pretty sure they only mounted singles.

The 174th would have only used single-rail (LAU-117) Mavericks during Desert Storm. Also, ECM pod was the ALQ-119.

it took some battle damage but made it back to base.

I believe it was a single also like what 11bee said.  IIRC they used the AGM-65D for that load out.

Weapons load chart for F-16s during Desert Storm here:-  https://www.dstorm.eu/pages/loadout/f-16.html

 

dstorm.eu is a very good site for all things Gulf War related.

 

That's where I got the initial info, but wanted to clarify how many. You are correct that it's a great site. Thanks for sharing it.

Definetly single Maverick  loaded on LAU-117. And, as the Dstorm site is mine, if it was 3 Mavs, I would write it there ;-). Thanks !

EDIT: Btw, the D version was carried on A-10As as a "poor man´s FLIR", so it could be same on the F-16s ?
