"Tools of the trade" - Armed Aircraft - Let's see 'em!

Postby Tommy on Fri 01 Jun 2018, 10:35 am

The premise is simple, post your shots of armed aircraft.

Let's be broad on this one - it can be any aircraft, and "armed" can mean dummy, replica, and training munitions. I'll also count aircraft with representational weapons laid out in front of them at airshows and the like.

If you can, provide a bit of info, too. What's equipped, why, where, what exercise etc, that's always fun. We might learn a thing or two.

Couple from me to get things moving. I'll add a couple more later:

Not the most amazing ones, but undersides were in short supply for the Su-34 display at MAKS.

Toting an impressive load of (I'm always crap at this, so stand very much to be corrected, but working from the outer wings inwards) two R-73 and two R-27 air to air missiles, a pair of Kh-31(?) anti-radiation missiles, and a Kh-59(?) on the centreline. I think.

I'm afraid I don't have the first clue on thin pointy things so wouldn't be able to name many of them, might be able to point out a Sidewinder but that's about it :lol:

Anyway, here's some pics of pointy things on pointy things :-
