Wish I can help but I don't follow modern military... why don't you post it in Aircraft forum as I am sure somebody answers your question.

Sorry,the above post is not 100% correct.

 

We used;

 

1000lb Iron bombs with Mk960 MFBF (Multi Function Bomb Fuses) & Mk 901 retarded tail units.Loaded in 8s on the Tornado,carried on Twin Store Carriers.

The is no such weapon in the RAF weapons inventory as a 500lb bomb,we do however have 540lb Iron bombs,these were not used.

JP233

ALARM missiles

1000lb LGB's,(Mk 13/18)

The CPU-123 refers to the guidance unit & NOT the bomb.The LGB's we used are not the same as used by the USA.They are a standard 1000lb bomb,Mk960 Fuze & CPU-123 guidance unit.Because the bombs we ise are different that those used by the US ect,a mating collar is fitted to allow the tail unit to fit.

BL755 CBU's

CBU-87 (Used on Jaguar & also trialed but never flown on Tornado

AIM 9L

Harpoon missiles & Stingray Torpedo's were carried on Nimrod

hasegawa do a number of 1/72nd weapon sets. They are meant for US aircraft, but i think alot of the items will work on Crab Air aircraft.

I wouldn't rely on that list too much as the are a lot of innacuracies there.

For example,we (The RAF) don't use Mk 84 bombs,nor 114/117 tail units nor did we load BL755's on Tornado.
