nah...for me weapon 4 is always rockets. Releasing drop tanks is hat-switch 2 button 4.

Mine is brake http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif.totally depends on what you´ve got it sticked for in controls.

I haven't played yet, but the weapons are as follows:

Weapon 1 - Canon
Weapon 1 - Machine Gun
Weapon 1 - Rockets
Weapon 1 - Jettison Droptank

I'm confused because Jettison Droptanks is its own command. Any suggestion or just leave Weapon 4 and Jettison Droptanks?

Now I'm confused too... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Where/how did you get this info:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Weapon 1 - Canon
Weapon 1 - Machine Gun
Weapon 1 - Rockets
Weapon 1 - Jettison Droptank </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Me thinks this is what it is like:
Weapon 1 - Machine Guns
Weapon 2 - Canons (or even More Machine Guns in some aircraft)
Weapon 3 - Rockets
Weapon 4 - Bombs

Just assign anything the way you think is good.

Oh, okay, just leave them controls as they are for now, go play, pick a plane w/o bombs/rockets/drop tanks first.

Have some fun.

When yer up to it, load some bombs. Drop 'm.

Load some rockets. Fire 'm.

Load drop tanks. Drop 'm.

This way you can figure out yerself what you will be needing most frequently, and what button/trigger you need to assign to drop anything.

Good Luck!

Some planes can carry drop tanks + bombs, so you generally don't want to drop your tanks and your bombs at the same time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Weapon 4 in the game is usually rockets.. how you asign it on your stick is another matter.

If I am niot mistaken it goes like this:
1- MG
2- Cannon
3- Bombs
4- Rockets

I may have 3 & 4 reversed.... Droptanks on my setup is set to the key T.. and that key is mapped to one of the buttons on my X-45, in mode 1 I think.

OK, according to Korolov1986, Jettison Droptanks and Bombs are differnet.

Even if you wanted to I don't even think you can map droptanks to weapon 4 can you? Droptanks has its own separate key and that's just they way it is. I do think I understand the question though. I definitely would not put droptanks where the weapon 4 firing button would normally be but you just have to see what works best for you.

In a default install, Bombs are Weapon 4. Drop tanks jettison command is CTRL+T.

I use-

1: MG
2: Cannon
Shift + 1: Rockets
Shift + 2: Bombs

Can't accidentally hit rocket or bomb release and save buttons.
Droptanks, I just use the keyboard. You only have to do it once a mission, why tie up a button with it?
