||The armament and ordnance configuration can be modified somewhat depending upon the type of plane chosen. Although we do take some liberty in providing various type of missiles and or guns, you need to keep in mind the type of plane with which it would be utilized. No, don't plan on getting a full load of Sidewinders and Zuni rockets with a prop driven plane such as an F4U Corsair!
Some of the aircraft are not designed to be fitted with rockets or missiles and consequently have a "Clean" (or none), missile load. On most of the missions, you will have a hard time running out of rockets.
||No Missile load
||Unlimited rounds for the guns. 20 mm to 50 mm guns depending upon plane.
||Combination Sidewinder/Sparrow and/or Phoenix missiles.
||The MK-82 is a free-fall, nonguided general purpose [GP] 500-pound bomb. The bomb is usually equipped with the mechanical M904 (nose) and M905 (tail) fuzes or the radar-proximity FMU-113 air-burst fuze. The MK 80 series Low Drag General Purpose (LDGP) bombs are used in the majority of bombing operations where maximum blast and explosive effects are desired. LDGP bombs are designed to be aerodynamically streamlined. Their cases are relatively light and approximately 45 percent of their complete weight is explosive. General purpose bombs may use both nose and tail fuzes and conical or retarded tail fins.
||Full load of flares/5" rockets/or AA series
||The Mark 82 Snake eye bomb is a development of the Mark 80 series of weapons designed by Ed Heinemann, designer of the A-4 Skyhawk. The Mark 80 series of bombs were designed as low drag weapons to be carried on pylons of aircraft. Unlike the older Mark 50 series of weapons that had been designed to fit in internal bomb bays of World War II bombers. The Mark 80 series of weapons has been adopted by most of the airforces of the free world and are still in production today.
||The MK-83 is a free-fall, nonguided general purpose [GP] 1,000 pound bomb. The bomb can be fitted either with mechanial nose and tail fuzes or with a proximity fuze.
||The MK-84 is a free-fall, nonguided GP 2,000-pound bomb. The MK 80 series Low Drag General Purpose (LDGP) bombs are used in the majority of bombing operations where maximum blast and explosive effects are desired. LDGP bombs are designed to be aerodynamically streamlined.
