The crew I believe. Most AF missiles can have the warheads removed and it looks just like the normal missile. One of my old supervisors told me in
Vietnam they took a bunch of old missiles without warheads and stuck them on broke fighters to look like they had more birds on alert than they really
To the crew they looked like just empty missiles, and they can't open them up to look for warheads. Though missiles without warheads are required to
have blue stripes painted on them, but there's alot of "required" stuff in the military that falls through the cracks. According to the aircraft
forms, they were just empty rounds to carry.
