Look up the Lockheed CL-1000 for a Starfighter with a different look.

Iranian anyone:

Were those forward fuselage hardpoints actually used for the carriage of bombs?

It obviously wouldn't fly with everything loaded like that.  what I was trying to show though was that it was possible to fit bombs on the fuselage pylons.

Yeah thatís just a show off photo with every bomb and missile they could find. However, it does make the wings seem to angle downwards more than usual! :o  ;)

Don't remember if I mentioned this earlier, but how about a F-104J-Kai, equivalent to a F-104ASA but with Japanese radar and, depending on timeframe, AAM-1 and AAM-2 missiles or AAM-3 and AAM-4 missiles - in each case, the first is a Sidewinder replacement and the second is a Sparrow or AMRAAM replacememt.

What if the German Re-unification went the other way and we ended up with West German aircraft in East German schemes:

I always thought that if the DDR had taken the BRDs offer of a bail out we might have ended up with the 2 Germanys in a close defence alliance after a change of government in the east.

I love the F-104s, but they might have initially used F-4F (ICE) Phantoms, and then moved up to operating Typhoons like Austria in an integrated system
