Which one is the 180mm grenade launcher, which one is the laser, which one is the 25mm machine gun, and which one is the flamethrower?
Pretty sure the big one is the 180mm grenade launcher. As this pic shows more detail, the one with holes would be my bet for the machine gun, the middle for the flamethrower, and the laser on the outboard end.
Big one is the 180mm, The one underneath includes a ribbed barrel that I'd wager is intended for cooling the laser. That leaves us with the little barrel and the ported cowl. 25mm is too small to expect any real need for recoil, flash or noise reduction on the mecha scale, so the ported cowl must be to protect the relatively fragile ignition and dispersal for the flamer.
So, Clockwise from the top of his left hand gunpod: Grenade launcher, 25mm autocannon, Laser, Flamer.

>I have always liked this design for the Destroid. If I were somehow in the Macross world and couldnt qualify for the VFs, I'd be happy piloting a Destroid Tomahawk.
The Tomahawk (and its Destroid brethren, but especially the Tomahawk) is primarily what spawned Battletech, and this created the entire schema for Western mecha as walking gun batteries.
The one with holes is more likely the flamethrower, it looks like a windscreen.
Fictional portrayals of flamethrowers always go for weaponized zippo.
I mean sure it would make sense to be the mg, since the holes allow for increased exposure so as to help the barrel cool off, but I wanna be on flamethrower windscreen this time.
Don't forget the Destroid Defender
I love just how weaponized all the destroids are, it's fucking ridiculous.
