I have read before on this forum that its arnament in AEP was wrong in some way,
I wonder what, and if they have fixed it?

I think it had half its real ammo capacity. This problem was fixed in the patch. Also the guns are far more effective now, I was able to down 4xYak-1A's with my G.50 in a single flight with it. Used up every last bullet but that isn't because of short ammo capacity or ineffective guns, I just can't shoot worth sh*t http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif. I guestimate (no real numbers, just impressions) it takes about 10 12.7mm hits from the G.50 to snap the wing off of a Yak-1A.

Combined with approximately 1 hour of available flight time (fuel on 100%!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif) and -complicated to use-2 x 12.7MG's (cannons?)- AEP 2.0 G.50 compete very well for title of "œber **** plane of the game".

Still I love this bird, also fly Finn campaign with G.50 (choose it for '41&'42 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

Don't know about 2.01 G.50 though. Hope something's changed (instrument for raising/downing flaps somethime vanish from your cockpit---when autopilot is engaged---strange-hope they'll fix that also)...

Cheers

I read in the Italian forum( www.il2sturmovik.it (http://www.il2sturmovik.it) ) that the ammo load has been fixed but the two counters on the dashboard still start decreasing only when you have expended 150 rpg.

Cannot confirm personally because I have no connection at home till Tuesday.

Just a little bug, if annoying.

Whereas I was able, with 1/4 second bursts, from both of my guns, down 4 G.50's in one pass with my Yak-1b!

I had been wonder about different between most Yak with single 1x12.7mm MG (UBS), 1x20mm cannon (ShVAK) or 1x7.62mm MG (ShKAS) against US plane with 6 50. cal guns. Yak able to shot some plane down with single 12.7 as US plane had trouble shot other plane down with 6 50. cal guns.

In QMB, I saw B-25H firing all twetve 50. guns at Yak in short burst, Yak still flying with just some fuel leaking.
