The spread of the M2 in my Hellcat is way off!

I'm going to leave the community if this doesn't get fixed!

Why does Oleg hate the Browning .50 cal???

Don't make assertions. Oleg or Luthier won't go for that. Show some proof ! Do you have screenshots of the spread of various types of guns aimed at a smokesta..., I mean palm tree ? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Other than the fact that the .50 feels a little weak in IL2FB and AEP if they would add some tracer smoke and brighten up the tracer rounds a little I would be happy. All of the gun footage I have seen from WWII

I wonder what data they used to get the despersion that is currently modeled.

To me the tracers are a little hard to see compared to those seen in gun camera films, but the 50cal has a very high velocity, and the film is usually slowed down a little when it's on t.v. So it is easy to distinguish the rounds.

You ever seen a P-47 strafing a ground target and watch the hundreds of tracers ricochet when they hit armor or the ground? It looks like fireworks going off, and it is pretty bright.

keep in mind also that for every one of those tracer rounds you are putting out another 5 rounds in between.lol
I think the key with the .50 in AEP is velocity and like somebody said short nursts. I have been setting my convergence on the P51 around 200 and this seems to give me the best bang for my buck. The official chart for the P51 says 300yds, which is about 275m.
