    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.

              Jeez. I imagine there are three more on the other wing?

                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.

                        It's a error, I put 26 instead of 16... sorry...

                        No, there are two more and one guidance unit, so five bullpup (also its impressive too!!)...

                                That thing is cool. I just wish they'd give it a better paint job.

                                  Yeah most Russian stuff these days is painted blue. And most planes have a teal painted cockpit.
