View Full Version : German ammunition types

12-27-2005, 01:19 PM
The Germans had many different types of ammo for thier machine guns and cannon. Does anyone know how many of these different types will be offered in BoB? They had armor piercing, day tracer, night tracer, mine shells, high exposive, burning phosphorus, self destruct, and combinations of these put together. The Germans seemed to have a lot of specialized ammo for just about every purpose. Since we are going to be able to choose our ammo loadouts (which is really great by the way http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif) I would like to know which types for which calibers are going to be available. Maybe Oleg himself doesn't even know this yet but a little information would be nice.
I was just doing a little research and found that the Germans actually had mine shells with a tracer element in it. Before today I never knew that these existed. Here is a link to a website about the different types of 30mm MK108 ammo. http://www.xs4all.nl/~robdebie/me163/weapons15.htm

Here is another website on the loadouts and ammo types. http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Hangar/8217/fgun/fgun-am.html

There is some very interesting reading here. I hope that you all enjoy.
