It is hard to tell if you don't specify what the target is, and more important, what ammocount these weapons have. Plus, weapon arrangement would be nice too.

Example: If you offer me doras armament (250 rpg for cannons) and SpitVc 4xHispanos (with 60rpg=240 rpg overall) I'll take the Dora one, but if you offer early zero (60rpg, cannons far in the wings) vs 4 hispanos on F4Uc (240 rpg!), corsair is obvious choice.

and a 8x.50 cals would be better choice for the poll, as now hardly anyone will prefer 6x.50 over 4xhispano.

Voted 4xHispano.

4 Hispano cannons...no question. They can put out a greater weight of fire and higher explosive potential.

Quick question?

What has the greater rate of fire, Mg151 or Hispanos? For some reason i prefer the mg151 to hispanos, and would happily trade the wing mounted hispanos in say a spitfire for one nose mounted mg151.

However, voted 4x20mm Hispano, but thinking about an A6!

I do however like having a second weapon though, aka spit 4x303's.

I like the mg 151 the best. Those arranged like in FW-190s... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I don't know what actual difference mg 151 and hispanos have, i just feel i hit things better with mg 151. I also feel it's slightly more powerfull but that can be because i hit better with it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

MG151 is 12-13rps, Hispano is 10rps. Hispano shell is faster and heavier.

4 x Hispano would be best, followed by MK108. Thats in terms of pure destructive potential mind you.

If against early war planes, I might prefer a loadout that gets more hits, and more fire chances. 1 MK108 doesn't give you a good probability of hit.

Of what you've given us: 4 X Hispanos (Mk II for preference, they seem a little more powerful for some reason), so I'd say Spitfire Mk Vc/Hurricane IIc have the best gun package, even though 120 and 91 rounds per gun, respectively, means they are a little thin in the ammo department.

But the best default gun packages I've found are:

Beaufighter: 4 x Mk II Hispano + 4 x .50 M2 Browning
Mosquito: 4 x Mk II Hispano + 4 x .303 Browning
FW190A6/8/9" 4 x MG151/20 + 4 x MG131
La-7/Yak-3P: 3 x B-20
Bf-110: 2 x MG151/20 + 4 x MG17


You've also got some freakish monsters like the Me-262 (4x 30mm), Do-335 (1x 30mm + 2 x 20mm), Ta-152 (1 x 30mm and 2 x 15mm[?]) and the 30mm armament loadout options for the Bf-110, Fw-190 as well as the gun pods for the P-38.

I don't know if any of you noticed, but one of the choices was 420.

Hurri IIc in later years is still the mud mover of choice.It can destroy almost any tank with a short 20mm burst.It can take some beating,it is relatively fast,finally it can take up with the fighters down low.

Overall a great plane even in `43.I`d pick it over any P38,Me110,Sturmovik or Mossie.

That is certainly a debatable subject. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Mg151 was a very good gun with advantages over the Hispano. Not that the Hispano didn't have it's advantages too.

The Spit IXc's have 2x20s and 4x.303s and the IXe's have 2x20s and 4x50cals.....is that right?

I seem to do alright at 150-200m with the IXe, but i'd trade the 4x50s for another 2x20s..a la tempest.

I just like seeing planes disassemble....I guess its a personality flaw. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

best gun/cannon combo? it all depends on what you're doing and who you're shooting at

Most powerful/dangerous? How about one big *** bomb that a certain B-29 carried?
