Buccaneer Mk.2A which underwing weapons?

Unread postby NewtAndToad » Fri Oct 11, 2019 10:09 pm

Hi all

I'm not convinced that XV348 carried mantel missiles, as supplied in the Frog kit, Can I get away with two slipper fuel tanks on the inner pylons and SNEB rocket pods on the outer Pylons? This is Honington 1970.

Buccaneers certainly did carry Martels.

There are pics on the web of XV348 carrying slipper tanks and empty outer pylons and one of her carrying bombs on the inner pylons and empty Martel launch rails on the outer. So I think you can make the load what you want including your suggestion of tanks and SNEBs.
