|This is something I've been wondering about for a while. Does anybody have some official statements at hand about what can be slung under the F-22's and F-35's wings?
To me it seems like there is some potential, odd design conflict, depending on the expected mission profiles and load-outs.
The idea that the two 5th gen jets could carry tanks and ordnance under their wings once the door is knocked down, to increase payload and range, often comes up, but are they really engineered towards it?
Can anybody point me to some official sources stating the under-wing load that is to be cleared for the F-22 and the F-35 respectively?
