hi there,
I have FB with last patch installed and AEP.
I have seen a problem with landing lights in some aircraft. For example using P-51 and P-38 turning on landing lights it seems that they are put inside the wing and not in front of it.
is it a bug? or it's normal?

Cr-42 fighters could carry two 50kg bombs under the wings (documented by historical photos) why it's not permitted in the game?

I hope to bu useful and I am not OT.

Regarding the landing lights of the P-51. It seems logical to me that it would be inside the wing if your landing gear was retracted when you turned it on. On the P-51 the landing light was situated next to the right(I think) landing gear strut and retracted to gether with the wheels to lye enclosed in the wing during flight.
As for the P-38 I don't know http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I hope the CR42 (as well as a few other birds) get some...heck any!...ordnance to allow them to move a little mud. The addition of ordnance would greatly improve the playability of historical scenarios where these airplanes actually HAD to pound the ground.

I hope the upcoming patch in addition to the 50kg bombs which the Falco did carry, that the vicious flat spin bug is fixed...

yes, it's right. I visited the italian air force museum last sunday and i saw that landing lights of P-51 was on teh gear. But in the game the problem persist with the gear down too. If is not worng in P-38 the landig light is in front of the left wing.
thx alot
