Would the F-16 ever have the radome open for maintenance with CATMs, ACMI pod, Sniper/LANTIRN still equipped? Or would the jet always be stripped clean for any maintenance?

Thanks!

It depends on the maintenance being performed. ACI/CATM are maintained a separate group and are typically installed and removed just before or after the flight. TGP normally stay on unless a configuration change, problems with the pod itself or specific maintenance that needs them remove. The radome being open should not affect any of those.
