Some american planes have the armament option: Extra ammo, How much does this extra weight effect performance?
Mostly thinking of the P39´s, some others have it too, the P-47 among others I think...

Don't know, but if ammo weight is modeled, a few extra rounds should make a very marginal difference.

Just found out that ammo weight is modeled.

Its more than a few extra rounds in the P-47. Normal loadout is 1600 rounds. Extra ammo increase that to 3400 rounds.

Yeah, but on the P-47, the plane weighs so much to begin with that the percent difference is very small. I always carry extra except when I've got other ordinance on my wings. You can go through it very quickly if you aren't careful.
