I noticed with the 1.2 beta the Me-262 is only albe to fire it's rockets in one rather innacurate salvo. I know that the accuaracy of rockets during WWII was horrible compared to today's smart weapons so thats not the part I'm worried about. I just wanted to know if this wasan intended addition or not. Was the Me-262 only able to fire all rockets at once or in pairs like it was in 1.1?

It was common practice to fire all of the rockets at once.

It may also have been possible to fire tham 2 by 2, I'm not sure.

now only if they make all the rockets un accurate p47 lag il2s i153s like they were in reality http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif the rocket tubes were actually the most accurate and still didnt score many direct hits

They definately weren't fired in pairs. What we have now is more historically accurate.

I think Kimura has opined that at best they were fired in 3 volleys of 8.

EDIT: Thanks Xenios for clearing the 3x8 thing up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

When FB first came out, I posted about this in Olegs ready room. There are numerous documents and pilots' accounts stating that the rockets were fired all at once. Luftwaffe pilots thought the R4M (Rakete 4 kilogram Minen Geschoss)was very effective, but there were never enough. The three volleys of eight were only 1/1000 second apart--in total, it took .03 seconds for all 24 to fire. Each 55mm rocket was suffient to down a heavy bomber, and there is at least one account of Adoph Galland downing two B-17s with one salvo. At around 600m the volley was supposed to cover the approximate space of a heavy bomber.

In "262" Vol2 pg339 it has the R4Ms fired in 4 salvos of 6 at 0.07second intervals at 600m.

I already asked about this last week. After similar replies, I checked to see if there were any intervals between the rockets. There is none. All the rockets fire at the same time. This is very easy to see using external view and the pause command.
