I'm after photos of the twin-bomb carrier unit (BRU-55) used on Classic Hornets so they can carry 2 iron bombs (and their smart versions) on a wing pylon.

 

Managed to dig up a few photos from the internet, but no side-on photos and no details of the rear of the unit.

 

Help appreciated

Tried all that, but maybe my Google isn't as smart as your Google...got exploaded views, cross sections, low res photos of the units from 3/4 front ant and rear, a few photos of the device fitted on aircraft in the air or having bombs loaded...but no side-on photos.

 

Anyway problem solved. A friend has just send me a few photos he took at an airshow. Photos taken with a modeller's eye.
