    I don't think so. Especially with the smaller one on the left wing. Neither of them have fins, so they are probably not intended to be fired/dropped - unless they are some type of bomblet device. I'm guessing they might be part of the LANTIRN system, but that is one wild-ass guess and probably wrong. :dunno:

    but this hog is carrying maverick missiles, so according to the link you provided it shouldn't be an OA-10. :dunno:

    the mavs didn't need a guidance pod. And it might have changed since I last worked on them a few :)o) years ago, but they didn't use to have a laser designator. The Pave Penny pod is a laser receiver, and depended on another aircraft or ground unit to fire the designator.

    I worked with the mavs daily for 2 yrs. those arent for them. And they arent rocket pods either. Other than that I have no clue.

    Don't think LANTIRN has been deployed on A-10s. Pave Penny serves half the purpose anyway.

    WTFBBQ1 looks like a 2.75" rocket pod, although it does seem a little small but that could just be the angle and the fact that you normally see them mounted on helo's so it would look bigger.

    the only way the mavs need a targeting pod is if they are the AGM-65E (laser) mavs
