What armament capabilities will the IAF hawks have?
the Australian ones have capability for:
60 x 30mm cannon rounds in centreline pod
up to 4 mk 82 bombs 2 each wing on pylons
2 aim 9 sidewinder missles launched from lau7a launchers on wing tips.
The australians also have capability to carry up to 16 BDU-33 from 4 CBLS that are mounted on pylons.
Any information on wether the IAF will have increased or decreased capability would be greatly appreciated
Also on another note what flying clothing will the IAF be using in relation to helmet mask combo?
The RAAF are still using standard 55p helmet with P & Q 200 series mask, hopefully the IAF will have upgraded to 55p and HA/LP mask combo
