    @Freerider2142 Since the aircraft can't be mirrored anyway i recommend saving the individual weapons as subassemblies and then dragging them out of the subassembly menu as often as you need them. It's a slower process but it ensures correct function and you have the weapons saved in case you want to use them on your own aircraft.

    Very cool build, very nice Replica!
    my only problem is that some weapons like the AGM-176 cannot be mirrored without editing the connections, so symmetrical load is not always possible.
