Extended Length Launcher
Primarily utilized by the U.S. Air Force, the LAU-131 A/A is an extended length version of the LAU-131/A. This modification makes the LAU-131 A/A capable of firing APKWS II. Additionally, it has forward and rear located firing connections to allow for use on both fixed wing and rotary aircrafts. This launcher often gets mistaken for the LAU-68 F/A, which can be distinguished by its thermal coating and lack of dual firing connections.
