How will the ROF be modelled in PF? The 3" gun was hand-loaden by the gunner, there was very little space left to handle the shell and load the gun, the enviroment was far from ideal for fast loadings the a/c was moving and so on.

In "B-25 in action" and "B-25 Mitchell walk-around" it's says during an attack, there was in maximum 4 rounds fired, after that the Mitchell left the area. (maybe for secure reasons)

Luthier can you bring some light in how the B-25 will be? Will the 21" recoil of the main gun be modelled?

Good question KIMURA. ( http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Your avatar is so angry..LOL)
Did the pilot get a comm message that the gun was ready to fire? Or did they just have a light go on (or off) on the dash?

Either one should be easy enough to implement....maybe.

Is that the 74mm cannon mount that was used to combat ships?

I know its a version thats going to be available...can't remember if its flyable or not. But that'll be quite the scene...with a bunch of these guys blasting ships...or even ground targets. Can you imagine the vulching that will go on with these...it'll be great http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yep, it was a 75mm field gun. Later in the war, some removed the cannons because of a lack of suitable targets. It had to be very slow reloading that thing. I expect after 4 rounds, either the target was destroyed or the crew figured their luck was about to run out. When the pilot lined up for the shot, he could use the two 50 caliber nose mounted machine guns to get the gun on target. This meant flying in a straight line, not the safe thing to do in combat!

the recoil of the 75 was severe. If fired to fast it would slow down the plane so much it would stall.
