One tends to forget that the National Guard gets cool toys every now and then. Usually it's just politics (B-1's? Really?) but sometimes you have to defend Pittsburgh from nuclear bombers ;-)

This website indicates that the missiles were launched from here:

Shouldn't be too difficult to make them work, although you'll have to make the missiles yourself (as you probably know, YS weapons don't move with their hardpoint in the .dat and so they'll have to be apart of the .dnm. because the missiles are modified, you'll have to make or edit some).

Ung!!! that's a lotta detail. What have I gotten myself into?
I don't think I'll be doing the crew pod gizmo at this stage.... will probably keep the missiles in-bay, rather than extending them. Technically not right, I know, but I'm using just a little artistic licence, going for overall effect more than deep-down accuracy. Just getting this plane Out There will be the top proirity.

Make dummy missiles in the model that move out when you open the bomb bay, then make the real missiles in the DAT invisible and fire from the exterior points where the dummy missiles would be.

Some new(ish) stuff, coming very soon.

A manned version of the Flyboy:

A half-baked thing called the FA-91:

Last, but not least, a revamped version of the FA-57 called the FA-59 Broadsword:

Yeah, I know, it's been a while. I got some new (i.e ORIGINAL, not repainted) planes cooking.
