South Korea. A-37B Dragonfly. 2xMk-20 Rockeye II and 2xMk-82.

That would have been Eugen from the very start of RD, then.
Yeah, okay, I forgot about South Korea. I'm hardly alone in that

There's also the A-37B Dragonfly that Worst Korea uses, but it suffers from 600 airspeed @ 0 ECM. It was a plane I wanted to love, but I simply couldn't. And to top off, it has those useless Sidewinders that just ramp up the price.
It is odd, I thought it would be such a cool unit but between the awful stats in every other aspect and the clusters not hitting before the bombs (would allow it to crack transports and then kill the infantry) I basically used it a little, took it in the campaign and then forgot all about it's loadout. The real irony of it is that the Sidewinder Bs shouldn't even have fitted on under the 3-slots-only rule since the A-37 has a 7.62 minigun.
Of course, the things changed
Mixed loadouts are something that can make MiG-21 great again (for smaller nations), thanks to the sheer utility that a 1000 km/h platform offers. Other possibilities are HE + Napalm and HE + Thermobarics.
Or damn, just a MiG-21 with 2x ODAB-500 would be dream material for smaller nations.
Honestly I'm glad you remembered it and pulled the concept from ignominy. Mixed loadouts can make anything great again, not just the MiG-21 but anything else that could carry more than one sort of bomb.
I'd rather FZABs myself though.
