I would like to know if (APKWS) would fit in there.
You could go 1 (APKWS) pod 8 SDB2 and 2 amraams for an impressive CAS setup.

I would love to see a couple APKWS in the Weapon Bay Doors of each F-35. As these could be carried on every mission for targets of opportunity!

While small the APKWS are cheap and accurate. They won't take out something like a Tank. Yet, the battlefield in mainly made up with soft skinned targets.

Not like it hasn't been done before...(i.e. F-102)

16 SDB2 is an even better one, or at least far more flexible.
