Tyler does have a good question about the multiple aimpoints toward the end. I suspect they’re GPS tags from the laser rangefinder. See, the laser on a sensor ball, is tied into the aircraft’s onboard GPS system. Knowing the aircraft’s position, and using the depression angle, azimuth, and range means it is a simple mathematical problem to derive the precise geographical position of a target, which can then be uploaded to the GPS guided weapons on board (or for that matter, shared via datalink to just about anybody else).
