F-4G Wild Weasel..

Postby X-Alt » Sat 25 Apr 2015 19:59

Coming from the other topics, it seems that the AGM-65 on the Wild Weasel is a valid loadout for the F-4G SEAD platform, and thus could create a viable 130-150 point SEAD\ATGM plane for the US, along with a viable alternative to the Raven and Skyhawk trains. Additionally, it will give the US a much needed ATGM plane with high speed and much more versatile than the Hornet or Thunderbolt. The AGM-65D and AGM-45B Shrike both feature a 50% Accuracy rate, which is quite mediocre for a SEAD aircraft, and coupled with 30% ECM will not make it the best at any particular role, but a usable jack of all trades, and benefits from the fact that Radar Off will do nothing to it... Alternatively, a loadout involving both the Standard and Shrike missiles would be neat.

Spoiler : :
145 Points
0\0\2\1\0
30% ECM
AIM-7F x2
AGM-65D x 2
AGM-45B Shrike x2

145 Points
0\0\2\1\0
30% ECM
AGM-78 Standard x2
AIM-7F x2
AGM-45B Shrike x2




Note: I assume "re-role" in the context of MadMat's post indicates handovers of say the F-14 to AIR.

Why would you want to make it worse for a greater cost?

This doesn't fit the high tech flavor of the USA, and the U.S. is already OP to begin with.

It would be a cool load out for a Soviet plane though.

IMO the Wild Weasel is the best American SEAD plane.

Because it will be able to engage radar AA that is turned off...

If the su-25T were included it could be interesting, but with how SEAD/LOS works either might be a really bad idea.

ATGMs have such a short range, it would have to be well within most radar AA range. Which means it'll probably get stunned before it could fire.

It's carrying SEAD missiles however, and it's checkmate assuming they hit. Of course a well developed ADN can bring the thing right out of the sky, but that remains the case for anything except Vodoo spam.

F4g load out 2 standard missiles 2 Shrike and 4 aim 9l
I think this would work rather well the standards for long range SAM's and the shrikes for less dangerous targets
