Assuming the P-51 will most likely be included in the upcoming free add-on I was wondering if there was going to be a little more variety in armament over the current "default" only settings for the A.I version. It would be nice to have "extra ammo", rockets, and an external fuel tank as further options. I don't know if the P-51's ever carried bombs but that would be a nice option as well.

Thanks

The P-51 should have similar loadouts to the P-47. At the least the extra ammo,rockets and drop tanks....

P-51's in Korea carried 2 x 1000 pound bombs and 6 x rockets in addition to the machine gun armament. While not the biggest load out among single engined A/C, it is substantial.

What do you mean by 'extra ammo'?

The British Mustang III could carry bombs(500lb??) and have seen photos of American P-51s with triple 'bazooka tubes' plus 500lb bombs.

What would be nice is a model of the Mustang I with the 4 20mm cannons./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think what he means by "more ammo" is more rounds for the .50 cals. The P-47 has this option.
