    I think it is fair to say this is the aircraft that has carried the most impressive weapons load...!

    Is it really safe to hang a bomb like that under the Huey's center line?

    I'm thinking the hardpoint could be crushed into / through the floor in the event of a hard landing with the bomb still attached. There's seems to be practically zero ground clearance!
    One would hope the bomb at least has a safety that would prevent it from detonating while still on the rack.

    For impressive looking weapons load I think you can't really beat a "Loaded for Bear" Skyraider - particularly in the Sandy role in Vietnam.
    In second place the A10 Warthog.

    Dropped in combat yes.. Carried no.
    By far the most impressive ordnance carrier so far was a Tu-95 with TSAR hydrogen bomb.

    Or a B-36 with a pair of Mk 17/24s. Or with a pair of 44,000lb T-12 (conventional bombs). I suppose it could have carried 6 or 7 25Mt Mk41s but I don't recall if the service dates overlapped. I wonder how much range and speed a Bear would have carrying a bomb that wouldn't even fit in it.

    The picture with the rocket pods got me to wondering why it seems that rocket pods tend to be used more by European air arms than the US (Navy, Marines, and AF)? Is there a reason why one would favor mostly rockets over mostly bombs, or is it more a doctrinal issue?

    I wonder if the Hawk 200 will ever be qualified to carry Meteor.

    What is the heaviest bomb load ever carried by an aircraft into combat?

    I would imagine it to be the B-52 in Vietnam at around 30 tons, although I stand under correction.

    Rocket pods were mostly dropped in the early 1980s. Just like on your side of the pond.

    I only count 16- 4 MER (left & right wings, centerline and right conformal; doesn't appear to have a rack on the left conformal) loaded with 4 each. That looks like the development F-15B that became the F-15E demonstrator testing carriage options. Notice the MER on the right (top in that pic) conformal, instead of the 6 pylons built into the conformal that became standard on the E.

    On closer inspection, it looks like the MER I thought was on the left wing is actually on the left conformal like the right, but I don't see anything on a left wing pylon.

    Fly into heavy IADS with a great radar and sensor fusion, but no stealth, you will have complete situational awareness of the guy that kills you.

    Anybody know if the current production Eagles have the kinks worked out on the outer pylons? (They've never been used due to flutter IIRC even though they're there in every Eagle AFAIK.)

    That's the first time I've seen those carry anything other than an ECM pod. I'm dying to know too.

    There are several photos from the flight test developement program that had them being used. I'm fairly certain there's one in the first Impressive Loads thread.
