To allow the RAAF and other Western Air Forces the ability to train their pilots in manoeuvring into the correct positions for a missile engagement they use Airborne Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation (ACMI), called an Aircraft Information System (AIS) Pod. These pods are usually fitted to one of the wing tip missile rails of the fighter aircraft (like the F-18), or on under-wing pylons (like the F-16).
These typically carry ballast weights (qty 3) on some fighters (ex. F-18 and AV-8B) and unballasted on others (ex. F-16, F-15, A-10).
Now you can add this unique scale feature to your model! Pod kits come with all the items necessary to assemble a complete pod. Detailed instructions are included for you to assemble and paint the pod to meet your needs. If you wish to add the ballast feature please select that option (std pod does not come with the simulated ballast weights).
