So, we will not be seeing double racked AGM-65s or GBU-12s? I was fairly sure the legacy Hornet could carry those on MERs; I know they dont use TERs because of the drag and weight.

If you can find info showing it, then please supply, but currently ED believes that this is not the case.

Not sure about Mavericks but I believe the BRU-57/A double rack supports GBU-12s



And again on the "wrong" plane.

Mavericks may foul one another on this type of mount owing to the wings increasing the diameter of the store plus the electrical support may not be there at least on the BRU-57/A

Those are VER, not MER and the Mav is on an LAU-117.

No I don't think that's the case, the F/A-18C carries only the LAU-117 which is a single launcher that carries and launches the AGM-65s as you can see in the attachment below.

This document does not mention any other LAU that is capable of launching multiple Mavericks (F/A-18C aircraft).

Dual GBU/12s were never used in Fleet like that.

That picture is of a Static Display isnt it?

IIRC VMFA-533 Decided to do a Mock Loadout of 4x GBU/12s on 2x BRU55s for fun/photo session.

But that loadout will never be done in real life due to Drag and Weight, and Wing Stress.


As for AGM-65s,, only one per pylon via LAU-117

Here is a photo with double rack GBUs that isn't from a static display, but I'm personally more excited for those double rack Zunis (LAU-10).

I fail to see why a BRU-55/A type rack with two low drag 500lb bombs would cause any more wing stress, weight or drag than a full 330 gallon EFT

USMC Legacy Hornets have more capability than USN Hornets.

USMC Bought BRU-55 Racks when they became available, the USN just started buyign them this year.
