AV-8B Harrier Thread

In regards to the idea of 12x GBU's I dont believe this is possible.

 

While GBU-12's are basically modified Mk-82's they require a digital/wired connection to the aircraft, I do not think that the standard USN/USMC/USAF triple ejector racks (Forgotten the designation number) are wired to handle smart bombs.

 

You could carry that many if you want to employ them as dumb bombs without their laser guidance seeker heads functioning properly- but I think that the DOD and lockheed martin would be a little upset that you used their high end gadgetry for such a purpose haha Mk-82's work fine.

Do they? IIRC, fusing and laser codes can be set by the ground crew, and I cant find any pictures showing an umbilical between the seeker/guidance section of a GBU-12 and the pylon, so I'm pretty sure that a GBU-12 can be dropped from any Mk-82 compatible pylon. But I have been wrong once or twice before, so if you have any technical documentation that says otherwise, feel free to post a link here.

Also, are we talking about the TER (triple ejector rack) correct? A-10C can carry and employ GBU-12s mounted on TERs. I'm assuming it's the same thing for the Harrier?

 

Yeah it's the same rack as on the A-10C I believe

Fusing laser codes etc are set by the ground crew and then checked by the crew on receipt of the aircraft before flight.

DCS: AV-8B Night Attack by RAZBAM Update

This past week was an important milestone for RAZBAM’s AV-8B NA as it entered internal testing. Over the next several weeks, the module will be de-bugged, tuned, and added to in order to bring it to being available for pre-purchase and then its Early Access release.

But, as always, everything is subject to change.
