Hate to necropost, but there's already this topic, so I didn't want to start a new one for an existing aircraft.
I've got one of these in my stash, and I'm pondering what to hang under it, and what scheme to do it in.
I'm not overly beholden to national air forces and operators; I base most of my builds on the fictional setting I've developed. However, doing this as a maritime light-strike aircraft is something that sounds good. Not sure what to arm it with? Would Harpoons be out of its' weight class, especially two of them?
Ideally I'd go for Penguins, but they're like rocking-horse poo in 1/48th scale.
I have some 1/48th torpedoes from an S-3 Viking that are itching to go on something, but I think they'd look wrong.
Suggestions? Ideas? Comments?

Well, considering the MTOW, according to Wiki, for an AMX is 28.66k lbs (13000kg), and a Harrier's rolling MTOW is, again according to Wiki, is 31k lbs (14000 kg), and the Harpoon wasadapted for Harrier carriage (again, according to Wiki), you should be fine.  Although torps on a modern(ish) jet would look delightfully anachronistic.

Finally l found the name for a plane l had seen on the web. lA 63 Avanzado. An Argentinian project based on the Pampa trainer, it really looks like an AMX with inlets low on the hull.

Don't the Italians use Kormoran AShMs on their AMXs?

Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

And let me correct myself as the full AMX lookalike is lA 68 while 63 still has two small engines, as far as l can tell.
