They are modelled very good now IMHO - the german 20 mm is improved (which means you can actually get a kill now without shoting the whole load in the focussed victim...)

THe MG`s aren`t useless anymore

The `50ies are Hellfire - dunno if that`s right, but it`s ok for me.

The Mk 108 Cannons are what they used to be in IL2 now and that`s good -

But still: The HE rounds won`t inflict very much damage on armored planes - In real life the German Pilots used a mixed Ammo load of either AP and Incendiary, AP and HE, or all three.

Confused.

Do you mean that the Mk108 should have AP rounds or the MG151/20 or both?

AFAIK the Mk108 never used AP rounds save for at the very end of the war when Allied soldiers came across supplies of Mk108 ammo that had been hastily fitted with Mk103 projectiles due to supply shortages.
