I hope your report is right. Where does the pic come from and why is it so at odds with reports that the plane only carries 2, 2000lbs with nothing else including a gun?

The load vary with the takeoff type, barometric pressure, Density altitude , temperature humidity, fuel weight.
Conventional takeoff, large ordnance load
Stol mid size ordnance load
VTOL very small ordnance load

One other thing that should be mentioned is that munition loads are rapidly evolving.
Large old iron bombs were to make sure that the target was in the area of Lethality .
with the advent of self lasing, buddy lasing and GPS guided munitions, smaller is now better.
A guided 100 pound bomb on target is just as good as a 1000 pound bomb 5 mils off target. It also allows more ordnance on the each station.
This also has the side benefit of reducing Civilian casualties and friendly fire incidence.
(side note friendly fire is not friendly )
