Mostly do WWII stuff, but have been thinking about building my Hasegawa F-4F. What kind of weapon/ordnance loads would you suggest for maybe ca. 1983? I admit upfront that I have no idea of this plane type's history with the Luftwaffe.

Thanks for any help,

Dwayne

The ICE (Improved Combat Efficiency) program which fitted them with APG-65 and AIM-120 AMRAAM kicked off in 1983 but wasn't completed until the late 80's, so for post-Peace Rhine upgrade (1975-1983) air-to-air you'd be looking at AIM-9L's only, which replaced the earlier B/F models.

For post-Peace Rhine air-to-ground they could employ AGM-65 Mavericks, Mk82 Snakeyes and BL755 cluster munitions.
