Auto Credit Based on ThomasRoderick's (somewhat) Accurate Ordnance Sizes and Flight Models

Left to Right:

  • Mk.13 Aerial Torpedo
  • Mk. 118 3000lb Demolition Bomb
  • M117 750lb Demolition Bomb
  • Mk.84 2000lb Bomb
  • Mk.83 1000lb Bomb
  • Mk.82 500lb Bomb
  • Mk.81 250lb Bomb
  • FAB-500 500kg Bomb
  • FAB-250 250kg Bomb
  • FAB-100 100kg Bomb
  • BGM-109 Tomahawk
  • AIM-120 AMRAAM
  • AIM-9 Sidewinder
  • AGM-114 Hellfire
  • LAU-131 Rocket Pod
  • M260 Rocket Pod
  • Mk.4 FFAR

Background:
After posting the original, I realized that: yes, indeed, I didn't make the iconic M117 750lb demolition bombs commonly featured on a lot of Viet War planes. Or that absolute unit of a Mk 118 3000lb bomb, which is also something of that era. Plus, it look cool - if a lil' bit less aerodynamic than the modern ones.
Then I realized I probably messed up on the dimensions of the Mk.80 bombs as well - there's nowhere in hell for those rather petite "low drag" bombs to look that t h i c c (I started reflecting upon that after I made a few bombers and realized those bombs' sizes are rather ... off). So here's the upgraded one, with the M117 and Mark 118, plus the updated Mk.80s and Russian FABs.


Installation:
For the Mk. 118, grab the detacher (painted in red in this picture for highlighting). Remember that due to REASONS those "detacher-mounted" weapons cannot be ejected from other detachers if they're dropped "normally", so make sure to link them up with some other weapons and drop them with funky trees if you really wanted to eject them from a bomb bay or so.

For everyone else, they're just XML-ed vanilla weapons, so use them like vanilla weapons.

    @ThomasRoderick Greetings! Would you like to check my AGM-158 JASSM replica, if you don't mind? I'm asking for some constructive critique of it.
