Hi,

I am starting to building the 1/32 A-7D Corsair II. I'm looking at photos for weapons loadout examples. I would like to see if anyone can help me with some questions I have on the following poor quality photos that I cant figure out. The following links are to pictures of the A-7D in Thailand ~1972-1973.

For this first one, I am assuming these are Mk.83 bombs event though the one on the outer pylon looks like a Mk.84. But it does look like I'm looking at two bombs an not one. Also a 2000lb bomb on outer pylon might be too heavy. But the big question I have is the type of fins being used. They look the ballute type fins, but were they used in Vietnam? Also the bomb on the middle pylon looks very low. Would it be on an MER? The inside pylon should be a fuel tank.

Second poor quality photo. These are definitely CBU's, but which type?

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Daniel
