At Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, Warthog News contributor Ned Harris from the United States had the rare opportunity to take this very interesting close-up shot of A-10C 78-0633 from the 190th Fighter Squadron, 124th Wing (ANG), on January 18, 2013:
Close-up view of A-10C 78-0633. AN/AAQ-28 LITENING AT targeting pod on station 10. But WHAT'S THAT on station 9??? It seems to be a LAU-131 rocket pod, but WHAT ARE THESE "EXTENDED" TUBES??? (Photo by Ned Harris) Full size
Note: Can/will any expert (pilot, crew chief, weapons loader) explain this??? I would be very grateful for any support.
