As far as I know the Skyraider was not cleared for Sidewinder but, it was cleared for the AGM-12 Bullpup AGM.  Mind you this would have been the later models of the Skyraider (AD-5/A-1E, AD-6/A-1H, and AD-7/A-1J) only.  But, being cleared/authorized to carry is one thing.  Actual missions where Bullpup was used operationally has to the best of my knowledge never been documented.

But what about high drag, low impact toilets? They were cleared for carriage and release. 
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Please refer to the correct designation:  "code name Sani-flush".




You know that you can actually get this in kit form:

Kind of tempted to get a bunch to develop the "Royal Flush" load out... ;D

The toilet was a damaged toilet, which was going to be thrown overboard.  you can see more here and here including videos of the real thing.

Well, they did throw it away, just not right over the side of the ship.
