AV-8B - BuNo 163663 - Modex WH-11 - USMC VMA-542 / MAG-32 - Le Bourget, June 1991
GAU-12 25mm gun pod is mounted on the port side while
the starboard pod holds the ammo. Note extended airflow barrier to the left
and strake mounted to the pod. Both form the Lift Improvement Device (LID)
package devised to trap downwash under the fuselage to increase lift and to
prevent recirculation of hot engine exhaust gas.
