    Either of the three Multi Functional Displays (MFD) can be set to the Air to Air munitions page. From there the pilot can select which missile they choose to fire. The computer is set up to fire missiles either IR (AIM-9 Sidewinder) or ARH (AIM-120 AMRAAM) in an order to balance the load of the aircraft thus if your first missile off is from the port side your next missile off will be from the starboard.

    The F18 can carry almost any American made air delivered weapon except for the Tomahawk, the Daisy Cutter, and the SRAM because they are too big and heavy for a fighter plane to carry.
