It looks like this currently:

while I'm sure it should look like this, as in the Heatblur manual:

I think it is correct, middle stations 4 and 5 are for AIM-7 Sparrow missiles.

The top image helps players visualize the position of the semi recessed sparrow positions and where the Phoenix pallets go. The rear pallets are mutually exclusive to the rear recesses, so the SMS considers both to be stations 4 and 5 depending on which is loaded.

So shouldn't Tomcat then be able to carry (in one sortie) 4x Sidewinders, 6x Phoenix and 2x Sparrows???

Not even close.

 

This isn't a hard concept if you've ever seen photographs of the F-14s loadouts. 6 and 3 are forward. Phoenix rails interface directly overtop of the Sparrow wells, thus covering the recesses. Sparrow centerline installation, 4 and 5, are too short for Phoenix, thus the pallets for 4 and 5 are carried on the channel sides with the recesses blanked. The wiring is shared between both locations of 4 and both of 5; that doesn't mean they can take two weapons at once, because the WCS won't be able to cue one or the other, and the Sparrows won't fit with the pallets installed.

 

8A and 1A can only support a single missile.
