For a more current load-out, you could expect "killer scout" vipers to fly with two GBU-12's on one side and a GBU-38 JDAM on the other side, with preferably a LITENING or SNIPER targeting pod. Although Maverics were not as common at least a couple of years ago, it sounds like guys are using them in the desert now from some of the most recent news articles I've read, so maybe they're making a comeback.
