    The travel pod is under the pylon on Station 7. The ALE-50 Towed Decoy dispenser is above the rail on station 8 (immediately under the wing by the middle yellow static discharger).

    Travel pod?

    Max, the travel pod is purple, and mounted on Station 7. The ALE-50 is mounted to the wing, above the rail, on Station 8. (The missile rail on the wingtip is Station 9.) The rear is gray and flat -- the 2 decoy cartidges alide in in front of the gray panel.
