harsh seeing these over the 10 wing mounted r4ms rails.Aeeing the performance loss from 6 on the jugs makes me wonder how they will effect the p38. Also the tubes could be jettisoned in reality.

still looks like a beast but i bet those will effect performance so much. Amazing work by gibbage S`

Looks like there may be a beta or two out there. Nice picture. If the FM is realistic, the racks will surely affect both lift and speed. I don't believe the real racks could be jettisoned.

BTW, I've never seen those racks attached to the pod, and can't find any in my reference stuff. Maybe someone can post a url to a P-38 site showing these.

Winning isn't everything;
It's the only thing!

yeah i dunno, in europe the used 10 wing mounted rails and in the pacific they used the trees, but not like those, i never seen them either on the L model but im sure there has to be some documentation of it that gibbage has, the trees and rails definatly appear like they would cause less drag then the heavy tubes tho

I know what I am going to shoot at from a safe distance when I catch one of those online. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And yes, the tubes could be jettisoned in real life, maybe someone could report it to Oleg to have it fixed.
