I don't know about the rest of you Jug Jocks..but I sure would like to have some official API rounds in my Jug. I know we are supposed to have the AP rounds and Icendiary rounds modelled in alternating every few rounds (yea right), The nose cannon on the P-39 alternates AP/E shells every few shells so I know it's possible. I for one would like to see it be an option (possibly under extra ammunition)that we have the API round as used religiously later in the war, though used more in the PTO I believe for clear cutting jungle. Heck if it is modelled that way and I didn't notice..maybe it is the lack of effect the Incendiary rounds seem to have with the current .50cal model.

When you were hit from above and behind, and your attacker held his fire until he was really close, you knew you were in with someone who had a great deal of experience.-Erich Hartmann"[b]</center>
