LAU-129 launcher on station 2 and 8
Hi all! I see some picture here with lau-129 launcher on station 2-8 (same to 1-9). How can use this launcher on station 2-8? Because, you know, the default launcher on 2-8 is not realistic, only 1-9 is ok.
LAU-129 and 16S210 are both legit pylons.
the 16S210 can only be used for carrying AIM-9s (not sure that 9x) where the 129 can carry AIM-9s and AIM-120.
therefore the 16S210 is being phased out on the USAF, however, it is still very commonly used in other airforces. so saying “it’s not realistic” is a bit harsh.
however, there are some inaccuracies in the way the two launchers are used. let’s hope it will big corrected to the next version.
