That's fine and all for singleplayer and if you have the time but in multiplayer this just would not be feasible. Real life limitations mean that I have at most 1.5 hours to fly a day. Between INS alignments, Mission designers who like realistic deep-strike missions and now briefing rooms I'd be lucky to get one sortie in. And even if I had more time you'd probably want to get rid of hot-rearms. On the servers I fly people are spread out between at least 4 time zones, so not everyone shows up at the same time. There are very few occasions where we can coordinate strikes to this level. And if we do have FAC I have to shut the A/C down and go to Debrief Room to deconflict the laser codes?

Lets be reasonable here. I like realism as much as the next person and I'm not not advocating changing codes midair or any other Ace Combat type mechanics, but its still a simulation with some artistic license and as such, the loadout window makes sense and a practical compromise..
