Hello Everybody,

I know alot of people here have the 1.2 Beta. I myself don't have it because I am waiting for the final release. But I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the P-51D-20NA got drop tank's,bomb's,and rocket's. If so what are they. I really hope it got loadout's because the Stang would be pretty boring with just machine gun's. I know the Mustang pilot's were allowed to dive down on the deck after escorting the bomber's to use up any left over ammunition on ground object's. I also know they went on ground attack mission to German airfield's among other thing's. Having bomb's and rocket's would be great to have. I just hope the AA and AAA aren't as deadly to Mustang pilot's as they were in real life. More P-51 pilot's were lost due to ground fire than enemy aircraft fire. Thank's in advance. =S=

Keep in mind that the loadout pointers for your INCOMPLETE Release Candidate install may not be realized in the final version.

Your missing fb_*.SFS files that would have been in RC_2.zip.

They were only allowed to go down to the deck after escorting the bombers. But if they ran into enemy action, all they'd have left were guns cause they'd have dropped their external tanks. A p-51 wouldn't be escorting bombers carrying 500lb bombs, it would be carrying drop tanks. So all a P-51 would have left was it's guns. They'd use them on the deck to straffe the Airfields and Train Stations only if they were detatched from the bombers.

Hello Beolke,

Yes I know they wouldn't be escorting bomber's with bomb's. They would be escorting them with drop tank's. My point was that the Mustang should have it's full loadout's in the final release. If it didn't then the Mustang would be pretty boring. Expecially in cooperative mission's and in campaign's. I don't have the 1.2 beta installed on my computer that's why I asked if the Mustang got it's loadout's. The P-51D should have the following loadout's available.

2 x 250lbs Bomb's
2 x 500lbs Bomb's
2 x 1000lbs Bomb's
2 x 75 Gal. Drop Tank's
2 x 110 Gal. Drop Tank's (For PTO Use)
6 x 5" Rocket's
10 x 5" Rocket's

I also believe it had a loadout of 6 x 5" Rocket's and 250lbs Bomb's,but I'm not totally sure. I really hope Oleg and crew include these loadout's for the P-51D. It would give the Stang more versatillty. Rocket's were definately one of the loadout's the P-51D had and they shouldn't be left out. I guess we'll have to wait for the final release to see what's included. But one another question before I go,is "Extra Ammunition" a loadout in the 1.2 Beta? Thank's. =S=

P.S. Oleg if you happen to read this please include these loadout's for the Mustang.

No loadouts eh? Welcome to the life of the FB Hurricane II pilot... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
No 250 or 500lb bombs, no 45 gal drop tanks, no 3" RP's and no Russian loadouts on their field mod... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
Still, with any luck it will only be a matter of time! Hopefully we'll get our Bombstangs, Hurribombers and others soon. (Bumpity)
S!

Yes I would much rather have rockets over bombs for this plane.
