Not quite yet though. That's counting 6 internal, which isn't a thing yet.

The drawback is that bitch isn't going far with that loadout.

I count 14 aamrams in beast mode. How are 10 external aamrams carried on 4 pylons when the other 2 pylons are used for sidewinders ? I know the super hornet can carry a pair of aamrams on a wing pylon but a triple too ?

The graphic very likely counts six interal slammers, then you'd have 4x2 on pylons in addition to the 9xs. Adds up nicely.

The six internal amraam is currently nearing operational testing according to tu.no - https://www.tu.no/artikler/kun-ett-krys ... erg/412047

Still much, much further than the SH when it carries it's max AAM load.

4 internal. 10 external.


I don't think so.

It's more like:
- 6 x internal AMRAAMs (To be or being implemented)
- 8 x external AMRAAMs (Dual Missile Rails per each external pylon -> 4 external wing pylons x 2 AMRAAMs = 8 AMRAAMs total)
Totalling 14 AMRAAMs

Plus 2 x AIM-9Xs carried on the outer wing pylons which if I'm not mistaken can only carry (or are only certified to carry) Sidewinders (AIM-9Xs) and not AMRAAMs.

Totalling 16 missiles!! (14 AMRAAMs + 2 Sidewinders) :shock:

Actually, the AMRAAM load out shouldn't be too awful, for range/endurance. Considerably less weight/drag, than an A2G load out. I'd be curious to see the radius with 6 JDAMs, 2 -120s, and 2 -9Xs.

Exactly.
And this specially considering the large amount of internal fuel that the F-35 carries :wink:
