Did You Know?


Gaiter's screen shows that 4 Sidewinder and 2 Sparrow missiles are being ordered for Gordon's Mirage III, in addition to bombs. The Mirage III can't carry that many weapons, as it only has 5 hard points. Nevertheless, Gordon's onboard display has icons for 11 weapons. He actually fires more of them than that, but the display does not count down consistently. Also, when when we actually see Gordon's plane it always seems to be carrying just 2 Sidewinders, and every time we see him fire one, it's one on the left. See more »
