Anyone know what this new launcher is on station 3 & 7? Looks like some sort of triple AMRAAM launcher that installs on the pylon, I haven't heard of anything like this.

Consept picture only, no such launcher exist (yet?)
Would be surprised though if this became a reality as this would be a major drag inducer similar to the triple AGM-65 launcher, reducing performance accordingly.

Looks cool though!

yea, if you're sporting that many AA missiles you're probably CAP, If you're CAP then you're probably not carrying a sniper pod.

Ohhhh I dunno 'bout that. If you're CAP-ing the pod could come in handy for long-range VID. And with the big motor its induced drag is prolly negligible. You're gonna be CAT3 anyway 'cause of the tanks.
