only in the data ini .... I don't think it'll work. my experiments for an MC-1 just gave me a drop tank, even after adding the recon camera.

 

alternativly, i could add the camera to the aircraft, and just have the pod 'fakedout' for fuel

i know several recon pods are housed in F-16 centerline tanks but i've never heard of them holding fuel as well...

the HIAC-1 pod might've also been a 600 gal centerline for the Phantom but i'm not sure on that one and am at drill this weekend :dntknw:

It's not for a 'modern' aircraft...hehehehehehehehe. it also carries about 2500 gallons for fuel. much needed for THIS bird!!

Could you give the aircraft a TV camera, but fix the view from where the tank hangs?

yes, you can hit The Wall in the vertical (I've done it) ... but not in a Hustler

 

decieded to go with a more stock loadout for recon

A question. Do recon pods have any real use in game? Besides dead weight?

 

nope

nope

 

Then why bother with all this ini work? Why not make a fuel pod that only looks like a recon pod/fuel pod but put it as a fuel pod in the ini?? Or am i out of my mind here?
