I think this would work rather well the standards for long range SAM's and the shrikes for less dangerous targets

2x AIM-7F perhaps, they rarely carried AIM-9s.

Well in that case 3 aim 7 assuming a jammer in the aim7 well

I'm pretty sure it has to have 4 of the same missile to ripple them off like it does now. having 2 of 2 different missiles would make it clunky, though neat.... I imagine.

I'd still prefer the AGM-65B or D to use it as a more versatile aircraft. M4P and L-39 trains, anyone?

Having AGMs would be interesting. The USAF is laughably not very multirole right now.

With it's current intro date it should be using Standards rather than Shrikes.

Shrikes were used all the way into Desert Storm because they were so common, it'll differentiate itself from the more Acc Raven and Prowler that way.

Standards were only used on 2 pylons, shrikes could be used on 4, it's fine how it is. If you want Standards, take the Prowler.

That would be pretty interesting, personally I'd love for it to have CBUs but I don't think ARM and bombs work together (for the same reason AGM and bombs fail) F-4G with CBU were pretty common though. I would be fine with AGMs, would add some flavor. I'm also fine with it staying the way it is though.

Two Shrikes and two Standards. Then it could ripple fire depending if you hand both weapons on or not.

But with that, you would essentially get a Prowler with more ammo at the cost of ECM, and AIM-7F missiles, nothing particularly special except an acc buff on one of the salvos. CBU would be neat, for 10 points less, and perhaps make it harder for it to immediately target SAMs.
