I never thought of Nashville as being en route to Pax River from other USN/USMC air stations, that makes almost perfect sense. I could be accused of
creating this thread under the influence similar to the way some have probably made one after having a few drinks, I just happened to have one to many
Super Hornets tonight and got excited. The pilots are staying at a hotel downtown somewhere, no idea where. To bad there aren't any military bars
around here like around actual air bases, finding them would be way easier.
I never knew the Growler hap wingtip pods for electronics, I had always thought they kept those hard points for self defense AIM-9`s and used the
AIM-7/120 hard points on the intakes for conformal pods. My head hangs in shame at my lack of basic current combat aircraft knowledge.
Trying find the hard point numbers I did come across your old thread here
like to ask if you could add to anything brought up there, it was well before my time here. Makes me think of a recent post or discussion relating to
comments made by an AF officer claiming that stealth isn't the hands down, end all solution to air dominance or something similar to that affect.
