I've seen plenty of legacy Hornets with asymmetric loads, but yeah, that one seems pretty unusual.

Not that anyone really plays online with realistic loads anyway, I find the dynamics of asymmetric loadouts really interesting.

I meant dual BRU-32s on one wing.

Asymmetrical loadouts are really cool. Remember Spanish Hornets bombing Yugoslavia in the 90's with something like, pair of Sidewinders, AGM-65, Fuel, Sparrow, fuel, Lantirn, AGM-88, GBU-12. I've to build it in a model some day.

Do they balance out the weight by partially filling up fuel pod on wing or do they try to match weight of fuel with weapons on other wing?

Nope, they simply trim it out. Most aircraft are more stable with asymmetric loads than the Harrier. Most fighters need as much fuel as they can carry to loiter longer, that is also why they usually have multiple AAR during a single mission.

Assymetric loads should also put a heavy lid on available G's.

Thanks, Matt. Interesting config. I like these asymmetrical loadouts. Did you have to use rudder trimmer?

One of the main reasons for the Tank on Center/Right was to allow the ATFLIR/POD to see, with tank on center and left, it seriously limited the usable view of the Pod.

Marines mount the Litening II on the Centerline now with tanks on Right Side or Right and Left.

When they are deployed on the Ship, they use ATFLIR on Left and Tank on Center/Right.

TIL why the ATFLIR is mounted on the left or right depending on what the loadout is.
