Hi,

I suggest that small tool could be added to Fw 190 equipped with bombs. I speak about main bomb under fuselage and two pairs under wing. Thre could be one key used for chaning priority of the bombs that would be jetissoned. There would be just three ways of bomb rack sequence:

main with 250 or 500 kg load
secondary with 2x 50 kg
secondary with 2x 50 kg

or

secondary with 2x 50 kg
main with 250 or 500 kg load
secondary with 2x 50 kg

or

secondary with 2x 50 kg
secondary with 2x 50 kg
main with 250 or 500 kg load

I would really love to have this choice in order to select proper bomb load for targets around me. Just example - I prefer to use 2x 50 kg for bridges, while for quick attack against airfield I prefer to have 250 or 500 kg available. If I would have to use bomb load vice versa, it would be less effective or less succesfull.

cheers

I think adding new stuff maybe too much work.

But if it would be less work I think this is something that could be tied to the "toggle gunpods" key. When gunpods are deselected then main bomb will not drop, with gunpods selected bombs will drop in normal order (note that with 110 the wing bombs drop first, so they would be the main bombs for purposes of the switch).
