every source i can find lists the armament of the 5b as 2x 20mm cannon 1x 13mm mg gun, and 1 7.7mm mg gun

and no, not just websites http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif, a dedicated zero book (and the auther is pretty condesending towards it (zero) too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif. and a book of ww2 planes.
i googled and a ton of websites say the same thing, havent heard of any field mods either to remove it. and while 1 7.7mg isnt much, it would be nice to have (for free cos fm must be done with the correct loadout?)

the 5b is probably the best zero aswell, so it is important http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

any chance of a a6m8 aswell? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Wouldn't this be the proper configuration?

In the WIP screenies, it's listed as the A6M7.

I concur, the research that I have carried out using several different printed sources states that the A6m5b had ONE of its TWO 7.7mm replaced by a 13.2mm MG, and it also introduced armoured glass in the cockpit canopy.

from what i can tell, they would just need to plonk the 7.7mm gun model into the cockpit..

that should be relitivly easy from what i know of 3dmax

A little extra attention won't harm the case... Oleg is not very likely to read all bug threads, so a little extra mail thingy is more likely to catch his attention me thinks? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
