Rafale - Full Air-to-air Missile Load

Sun Jul 12, 2009 11:14 pm

Has anyone seen a photo or drawing of the Rafale carrying a full compliment of air-to-air missiles? I understand it has some 14 external stations but I've never seen any kind of illustration showing what the load out looks like.

I had read somewhere that it can carry up to 12 of one of the types of air-to-air missiles its equipped to handle, though I don't recall which missile that was.
