I have to say that few 20 guns are not modelled correctly. In game, the cannons of Zero's are just Type 99. In RL the A6M2 had Type 99-1 cannons wich were based on Oerlikon FF. A6M5 had much better Type 99-2 guns based on Oerlikon FFL. The FF fired a 128 g projectile at 600 m/s and FFL was 128 g and 750 m/s. IMHO that's a big difference in velocity.

Also the MG 151/20 should be fixed as soon as possible. Yesterday I flew the He 162 and it took five bursts to down a Mustang, each about one second long. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

I don't know about the different types of Japanese guns but I know for certain that the MG151/20 issue and problems with virtually all 20mm and other types of wepaons has been looked at...

Holding breath till the patch but one can hope.
