Maybe the semi recessed missile will have to be named the Opprort Troll then!    (Uproaring Troll)

Over the years I've collected art of various proposed Arrow versions.  I'm not sure they are small enough to post here, but I've got the Mk.3, the PS-2, one Mk.4 proposal with a cleaned-up version of the PS-2's ramjets and tankage, and one of a PS-2 firing a PS-13 ABM.  Be glad to send them to someone to adjust to fit.  That Mk.4 could easily have just tanks instead of the full package under the wings.

How about Photobucket or your favourite photo sharing site. I'd love to see them Evan.

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

Really don't have a photobucket account or a sharing site at the moment.  Something more to attend to.

Let em see if I can't get them off to you in the next few days.

Karl Mesojednik has on his Avro Arrow Dedication Page about 20 nice profiles from the MK.I to the MK.IX.

Page is here.

Why put the Pythons in the weapons bay?  Their seekers can't "see" behind those metal doors...

Strange choice given that there are wing pylons, but not really a problem for the Pythons with their lock-on after launch capability. And maybe they've somehow tied in the Python's seeker with the IRST? And there's still the F-22's current low-tech solution - open the bay doors, extend trapeze and missile into the slipstream, let the seeker do its thing and then fire - or not.

I've always like the idea of a late 1960s Arrow modified by Vietnam experience:

Clear canopy
Gun and fuel in the former weapons bay
4 x Sparrow on the fuselage corners, F-15 style
Underwing drop tanks with 4 x Sidewinder on the sides of the pylons, F-15 style again
Twin vertical fins mounted at mid-span
