It's capable. They used on the A-10A, which was mounted on a different station (2 and 10, instead of 3 and 9 now with the Charlie), so some people say this implies in a few issues with the main landing gear wheel being 'burnt' by the rocket motor, but IMHO that's nonsense.

The issue with the triple Mavericks boils down to drag and weight. LAU-88 which is the rack used to mount the Mavericks adds a considerable amount of mass to the aircraft, and drag as well, the drag index is very high, especially when you mount all three Mavericks on it. Although it was used in the past, this kind of loadout isn't used anymore due to the performance penalties, a lighter, less draggy airframe is sometimes more efficient. I'm not even sure if LAU-88 + 3xMavs is authorized anymore, but to a certain degree, yes it's realistic, and if you need to use it in the sim, USE it. Don't be afraid of using it because some individuals in this community are saying it's not realistic. This is a game and real life is something else.

Well, I guess one of the real life maintainers can say about the tires. The weight and drag problem is also what I've heard, same with the triple GBU-12s and cluster munition.

I try and keep it as one hundo as possible for my own sake. I know that having 2 loaded lighter a-10s will always be more efficient than a single one, loaded like a pig.

There are a lot of people on MP who like to abuse the Hawg and load it to the brim as much as possible, which leads me to question, are those big drag indexes even simulated correctly in-game ?

Yes sir. You can even see their impact on your IAS.

The triple mount for Mavericks is the LAU-88 (BRU-42 is a triple bomb mount).

The A-10A Non-nuclear weapons manual says of the LAU-88:

• On ferry missions a maximum of three missiles per TER can be loaded.
• On tactical missions a maximum of two missiles per TER can be loaded on a LAU-88
• The AGM-65G cannot be used on multiple rail launchers due to missile weight constraints.

Oh my mistake, I apologize.

Yes, LAU-88. Thanks!

AFAIK the LAU-88 triple rack must not be loaded next to a TGP. Since the C-model will have a TGP loaded most of the time, you'd only see a LAU-88 on the other wing, and I guess that would add a whole lot of asymmetric drag and weight.

If Fulda gap became real, I'm kinda sure they'd hang the triple racks anyway. But with Afghanistan and Iraq (2003+), I don't think they've ever used the LAU-88 and only loaded single Mavs on LAU-117s anyway.

Are you sure about the stations? I thought they used the TGP initially on 3 and 9 because it looked to the aircraft like a Mav, until 2 and 10 were re-wired for the TGP. But I think Mavericks were always exclusive to stations 3 and 9.
