New Photos of A-10 Show Interesting Loadout

Images recently taken of the “Hog” expose some changes in the weapons loadout of the A-10s involved in the fight against ISIS.

Indeed, the aircraft depicted in the photos carries one GBU-12 Paveway LGBs (Laser Guided Bombs – on station 1 – the outmost one on the left wing), one AGM-65 Maverick missile (on station 3), one LAU-131 rocket launcher (station 2), three GBU-38 JDAMs (Joint Direct Attack Munitions – station 4, 5 and 9), one GBU-31(V)1/B with MK-84 warhead on the centerline station (station 7) and an AN/AAQ-28 Litening AT targeting pod (station 10).

Intriguingly Station 8 has a GBU-54 laser JDAM whereas the LAU-131 on Station 2 is a LAU-131A/A model used for the new (and very awesome) AGR-20 laser guided rockets.
