I saw a pic of an F1AZ on Pinterest up on the border fitted with 6 SAMP T200 French 400kg GP bombs - 4 on centerline rack and one each on outboard wing pylons. The inboard pylons were empty. Would they have fitted external fuel tanks in this heavy bomb configuration (2,400kg) ? Any pics would help. I also noticed in the photo that the rear bombs on the centerline pylon seemed to be oriented to have the fins at 90 degrees whereas the front ones had their fins at 45 degrees to clear the pylon. This seems rather odd. Any comments / info would be appreciated :D
