Hi Deino, if it isn't too much to ask, I've heard that Block 3 Thunder has an additional fuselage pylon dedicated for carrying pods. I believe this piece of information has been circulating around for a while now, but can't seem to find any evidence to back it up or disprove it... so is it true or not true (or do we need more information)?

Wait is that image not photoshop? Blk 3 actually is receiving HOBS missile and presumably with HMDS?

Nope, it's indeed real!

No problem and indeed, there is an attachment point for an additional pylon.

Oooh thanks a lot!!

p.s. If I'm not mistaken the Block 3 moved the rear hemisphere MAWS from below the vertical stabilizer to the top, and added front hemisphere MAWS on the sides of intakes (or at least that's what I believe what the grey protrusions are)
