Default Rockets for Viper

I am interested in several questions:

1. APKWS for it sounds real but will we have it in the game?
2. Will Zuni rockets be added for f16 ?

The planned features list includes Hydra rockets, but not Zunis (https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=241132)

APKWS is not planned right now, as it was not deployed on the F-16 until after the version we have in game. Actually, it wasn't even a functional development program in 2007 when our Viper is modeled.

Don't we already have Hydras for the Viper?

1. APKWS came half a decade after the F-16C we have (2012 compared to 2007), so no.

2. The F-16C wasn't fitted with Zunis ever so no again.

We do, but one thing I'd like is the '-131' 7 round pods. These are much more commonly used for the Viper, judging by the documentary evidence.

Two 7 round pods on a TER, with WP, is a pretty common loudout, particularly for the FAC(A) role.

Forgot about that, yeah we should have a LAU-68/131 (?) instead of just the LAU-61s that we have right now.

Not weird at all. Zuni is a US Navy/Marines weapon, not used by any USAF aircraft.
