here are some thing's I'm conserned about:

Will the P-51 have a loadout such as:
rockets
bombs
droptanks
etc...

or will it just be:
default
empty...

this would be a big bummer. We need the rockets bombs and droptanks on the P-51, maybe even beertanks! Yes, beertanks, some pilots took up beer in their droptanks to keep it cold. I was told this by a tuskegee pilot at WW2 Weekend last year.

the 1940 Hurricane has bomb pylons for loading what seems like tanks and bombs. However, there is no armament for these pylons! What's the deal here!

I agree, I think that some of the planes in FB now have too little choice when it comes to weapon loadout/payload.

it's a negative point, but concerning the P-51 specificly, I'm just glad we are going to get it flyable (in near future). /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

They did model the P-47's weaponry...shouldn't be hard to do the same for the P-51...not sure about the rockets, but I bet the bombs are the same thing.

Loadouts should be:

Default
Extra Ammo
External Tanks
500lbs (and less) bombs
Bazooka rockets (as on P-47)

HVARs would require zero-length rails on the wings.
