Default Arming a SEAD escort

I am wanting to create a mission that includes a SEAD escort of F-18s for my A-10C group.

I can add the F-18 and it's path but when I go to arm it I have no load out options and there is no munitions list to choose from. I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong or lack some add-on (other wise what good is it to be able to add other types of aircraft if they don't have weapons to do anything?)

Thanks

I don't remember off the top of my head, but the F-18 SEAD armament list might be empty by default. Just click new payload at the bottom and you'll be able to add weapons to the new payload that you create. DCS doesn't let you directly add weapons to planes, you have to choose from a list of existing loadouts.



After all this time, I still think the LOMAC armament screen is better than the DCS one. Ironically it also told you your left/right weight balance which meant nothing for LOMAC's flight model, but makes a difference in DCS.

You could add a second flight the is set to uncontrolled and after the first SEAD lands use it to trigger the second flight.
