According to the object viewer, the P-39D models are supposed to be equipped with the 37mm cannon. The tracers and sounds are like the Hispano cannon that the P-400 carries. Is this a mistake in either the aircraft model or the object viewer, or am I just mistaking what I'm seeing and hearing?

P-39 D-2 has 37 mm M2 selectable as an option in the armaments dropdown box. Visually, you'll notice that the Hispano is much longer than the M2

Thanks Hardball. I never thought to look there.

both , the D-1 and D-2 has the Hispano as default.
only the D-1 shows that in its 3D modell.
the D-2 shows always the M4 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
oleg told me long time ago via mail because lack of time (wich makes not much sense because the D1 and D2 are actually the same modell - only canon barrel is differnt so far i remember )

we had lots of discussion on the boards here - so, overall opinion was that the D-2 should have M4 as default ..... but i doubt something will change.

Yep...agreed!

Still, the Hispano is a nice option. Its definately better for fighter VS fighter ops.
