Baggage Pod

-

Pilots travelling from one base to another need to carry luggage.   When tranferring flying a fighter, luggage pod(s) is mandatory, using one or more weapon stations.  AAC baggage pods are either based on the British 100 gallon fuel tanks (inspired by the American CNU-264/A design), the MXU648 (itself made out of an empty BLU-27/B napalm bomb) or the 125 litre Fouga Magister fuel tank.  For the purpose of the game, all types are available to aircrafts using external weapon stations.

Podded Radars

(click on this image to enlarge)

Although radars will be adressed separately (to identify basic performances to apply to aircrafts equipped with them - see Radars), podded versions are worth to be identified separately (eg: the British Ekco ASV19 which equipped the German Navy Sea Hawk, as illustrated on the cover of Special Hobby Kit No. SH72173 reproduced here)  There are other types of podded radars, including a fantasy one, and within AAC, they may apply to other aircrafts otherwise deprived from that kind of equipment.

Radars may also be combined with external fuel tanks, and this matter is more specifically addressed further down on this page.

Combined Fuel Tank and Radar

(click on this image to enlarge)

Intended to provide a radar capacity to fighters otherwise deprived of this equipment while taking full advantage of a given weight carrying capacity.   All these items are in the 1000 lbs class and are based on early post WW2 podded radars like the British Ecko ASV19 (Ecko38B) used on the German Navy Sea Hawk and the American AN/APS4, AN/APS6 and AN/APS19 which equipped various piston engined fighters like the F4U5N, F6F5N, F8F2N, etc.

Combined Fuel Tank and Reconnaissance Pack

(click on this image to enlarge)

DB3F95 - Reconnaissance pod combined with a (modified) fuel tank (real life item)
Inspired by the initiative of Sq Ldr Don Brenchley, RhAF, in 1966 where 3 F95 cameras were installed in a modified Hawker Hunter 100 gallons fuel tank.  Pod available toany aircraft as it's the standard AAC RECONNAISSANCE POD.  The amount of fuel may vary to match the weight carrying capacity

Combined Fuel and Weapon Pods

(click on this image to enlarge)

Introduction
Considering that, in simulation mode, the amount of onboard fuel will be an important factor, especially for aircafts which may not be refueled in flight, some attention has been given to auxilliary fuel tanks combined with a secondary, but no less important, function.  These fantasy items are directly inspired from the French JL100 (combining fuel and rockets) and T500 (combining fuel and bombs) which are specific to the Mirage serie of aircrafts.  The flags giving an "origin" to these fictional weapons are as much fictional.  These combined items are of following kinds :

Combined fuel tanks and rocket launchers (FFAR) (see also : Rockets)
Inspired by the French JL100, the idea is applied to various rocket launchers.  The feasibility of really combining some larger diameter rocket launchers with a fuel tank is not relevant as these definitely are fantasy weapons.  Intended for subsonic jet aircrafts, they show as 500 lbs or a 1000 lbs class weapon

Combined fuel tanks and bomb carrying capacity (see also: Bombs)
Only the real French T500 item is considered.   However, while the real T500 might "only" carry four 500lb bombs(Note), in AAC this item is considered as able to carry up to six bombs (within the same 2000lbs limit)
(Note)

According to some sources, this particular fuel tank, or a variant of the same, could carry two Mk83 (1000lb) bombs underneath, hence the combination of these two aspects on the same item.

Combined fuel tanks and rocket launchers with bomb carrying capacity (see also: Rockets and Bombs)
A mix of the real life JL100 and T500, the JK200 item thus combines their respective capabilities.   Like the T500, the bomb carrying capacity has been brought up to six bombs, within the same 2000lbs limit.

Combined Training Weapons Dispensers

(click on this image to enlarge)

In simulation mode the gamer will be invited to go through various traning sessions, among them there will be sorties to training range(s).  Besides the array of real weapons associated with a given (training) aircraft, practice ammunitions dispensers are also available.  However, contrary to the real world, real small caliber ammunitions will be used rather than practice ones filled with white cement or water - see the appropriate chapter for further details about these ammos.

Among the practice weapons dispensers listed below, only the US SUU-20/70 is a real item, all the others are fantasy iterations adapted to the various FFAR calibers, aiming at offering versality to otherwise limited capacity training aircrafts :

BAZOOKA  &  RPG7

(click on this image to enlarge)

As a tribute to the memory of Lt Col Charles Carpenter (1913-1966), and Lt Tom Rozga (US Marines, VMO-4)  90mm (3.5in) M20A1B1 bazookas are made available as an "add-on" for L-18C light observation aircrafts used by several NATO Air Forces, very much the 1950-1960 equivalent of the L-4H flown by Lt Col (then Major) Carpenter or the L-5B flown by Lt Rozga during WWII and illustrated here.   In AAC context, the weight difference between the M1 or M1A1 used on the L-4H and the M20A1B1 imagined here allows to increase the number of weapons from 6 to 8.   This weapon might be made available on other similar aircrafts like the L19E.   As a direct inspiration of the above, the RPG will equip the Yak12 in a similar manner.
