OK. There was something posted about the P-51 C and B having a higher rate-of-fire due to its electric ammo feeder. Is there any documents on this? If so, please show me and I will make sure Oleg knows of it.

It was found out that the B and C had a lower ROF compared to the D.

The feeding of a gun doesn't speed up its ROF, especially with the M2 series. Lighter barrels are what speed up the ROF on the Browning.

So, one could say that all P51B's got the electric motors, but, there is nothing I can find that the MUZZLE BOOSTER was used on any P51's.. It only shows that they tested the MUZZLE BOOSTER on a P51B and got the re****ed increase to 950+ rpm
