Post Captive Air Training Missiles(CATM-120, CATM-9)

It would be nice if the f16 will be able to carry them in game. Since a lot of photos of real-life f16s are carrying the dummy missiles with blue stripes.

I know its "useless" in game, but we already have the cap9 on the f18 and the a10. And it only adds more realism to the module. It would be a really nice touch if ED decide to add them to the f16.

Something I hope makes it way to the Hornet as well. Both aircraft could utilized the catm-120s.

That should be possible to all modules. Also with blue bombs, training Mavericks and so on.. Lot of squadrons I know like to train in bigger groups of 10 to 20 players. If they switch to DCS F-16 it would reduce the number of looses during training a lot
And it adds a lot of realism. Maybe also the option ACMI just possible with installed pods?
DCS F-16C 40/42

It would be nice to have the BDU-50 series blue concrete training bombs on F-16 and F-18.

Great idea! Useful in MP aerobatics servers, where weapons are not allowed

I also wish they made SIM Master Arm "functional" in-game.
Would be cool for realistic training missions.

CATM weapons would definitely add more realism
