The weapon looks to be a laser-guided harpoon aimed for navy ships. Air to surface.

It’s actually not 737 but a military version of it, the P-8 Poisedon

Even tho it’s militarized, I still wouldn’t wanna fly a 737 into combat

I’m sure they drop their ordinance at a “comfortable” cruising altitude. Imagine dog fighting in one…

You don’t want to anger the wild and ferocious 737…

The lack of machine guns and afterburners might hinder it slightly.

Problem solved, the the machine gun part at least. Maybe JATOs for afterburner?

That’s cool but It looks like when those missiles fire the engines will fall right off.

I’m sorry but the way the pic is taken it just looks that way.

That’s why they drop first using gravity, then the missiles launch to their destination away from the a/c. See the third picture.

I’m pretty sure it’s not a middle but a sonar for detecting submarines I believe. I also believe it’s a sub hunting aircraft

The 737 would look nice with the P-8’s raked wingtips.

The RAAF has a few of these. Gotta love those pretty raked wingtips!
