Hi Guys,

I got a specific modellers question from a good friend of mine inregard to the Israeli F-16Is and the carriage of GBU-15s - more specificly the GBU-15v21 version.

He is about to build one I scale 1/48 and asked me if there´s an adapter pylon when carrying those GBU-15s - and I actually can´ t tell.

This drawing shows and mentions the GBU-15 with an adapter / spacer pylon;

But this 2008 Photo shows the carriage of an GBU-15 with no spacer pylon - hence the bomb is straight aligned!!

Any help is highly welcome.

Many greetings,

Henrik.
