The backstory reveals that the 4 x Aden fit was a popular one compared to the 2 x 20mm guns on many US CAS types of the era. I'm adding pylons, and as of right now the planned fit is the standard inboard drop tanks, with two outer pylons carrying BLU27 napalm bombs and probably LAU10 Zuni rocket pods. I'm also planning Sidewinder pylons on the belly similar to the AMRAAM pylons I out on a 1/72 RAF Hunter F.15 I build many moons ago.
QuoteAs for retaining F-86s in place or ordering a stop gap...back in the 50s fighter development moved at a lightning pace (no pun intended). A design could go from blueprint to service to retirement in a decade. Amazing when you look at today's development timetables. By 54-55 the F-86 would have been considered severely obsolete. I've always loved the idea of USAF Hunters so that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
