I wonder how many of those they could have stuffed into an F-22.   :'(

I did a napkin-analysis once and found that 7-8 could fit in each of the F-22's bays for a total of 14-16.

If they made a short-booster version as an Aim-9 replacement then 2-3 could fit in each Aim-9 bay.

Yeah, that much.

My calculations were based on that they are tube launched, can be packed in tight, can be stacked in two layers, and were planned to be launched via a tilting bed method (F-14 center-line plan).
