I would like to see the german Tornado with 2 x 27mm guns, 2 Aim-9L and 2 MW-1, BL 755 or MK80 series bombs (maybe for decoration and/or a greater range fuel tanks under the inner pylons)

Well I would like to see some planes be able to drop smoke the way some planes right now can drop napalm. I don't know how authentic that would be though.

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert and all my knowledge is off computer games and the interwebs!

A-10A
Reference pic: http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r191 ... adout1.jpg
TER = Triple Ejector Rack

Station 01 - 1x ALQ-119 or ALQ-131 ECM Pod
Station 11 - 2x AIM-9L on dual racks - sadly only three (including guns) weapons possible :(
Station 3 & 9 - 2x AGM-65D on TER (the rails inwards to the wing seems to be left empty for AGM-65)
Station 4 & 8 - 2x or 3x Mk.82 or Mk.20 on TER (I think Mk.20 would be more fitting for an anti-tank role)


F-16?
Well, that really depends on the time frame used and what is a prototype unit in game terms
For me the important thing would be that any AIM-7 Sparrow or AIM-120 Amraam equipped F-16s should be prototype units.
AGM-65 should also be prototype, all of those weapons were usable on F-16s after around 1987.
For european users, those missiles should not be available for F-16s in the timeframe.
So:

Reference pic: http://www.f-16.net/attachments/f-16_lo ... has__2.jpg

Air-to-air:
Station 1,2,8,9 (and possibly 3 & 7) - 1x AIM-9L
Prototype:
Station 1 & 9 - 1x AIM-9L
Station 2 & 8 - 1x AIM-7M

CAS (Multirole):
Station 1 & 9 - 1x AIM-9L
Station 3 & 7 - 3x Mk.82 or Mk.20 on TER

Centrerline Station 5 for all loadouts could maybe carry 1x ALQ-119 or ALQ-131 ECM Pod.

Would be nice if Station 4 & 6 would be left empty or had drop tanks.

General F-16 reference: http://www.f-16.net/

West German F-4F
Could not fire AIM-7 or AIM-120 in the timeframe.
Should be a bit more maneuverable but have less fuel than other nations F-4s due to deletion of air-to-ground avionics and one fuel tank.
(Yes, that's right, we ordered F-4s that could not do ground attack and could not carry Sparrows. So they had AIM-9B (thats a B like Bravo) and a gun. After we got them, we realized that was stupid and we upgraded them. We did it that way because it was "cheaper", lol)
Reference pic (kind of, it's for an F-4C): http://airwarvietnam.com/F4Chart1.jpg
Air-to-air:
Station 2 & 8: 2x AIM-9L

CAS:
no idea

Well, that's it for now. I wellcome discussion :)

PS: SEPECAT Jaguar FTW! (I love that plane i don't know why)
