Those are radar warning antennas.  Two on the right wing, one on the left.

The "stuff" hit the fan over that load out, no pun intended. The crew involved in that did everything they could to hide it right up to the catapult. Biological warfare? If I remember correctly there is a 1/72 scale kit that has the toilet included.

An educated guess says North Vietnam or Laos.

Okay..... probably right.  Was thinking maybe the admiral's barge, but was looking for a more specific target.
