Could be intereting against enemy bombers.

The DAG-10 grenade launchers were not fitted as standard armaments on the versions we have in game, so that's why we don't have em. And the rear firing rockets (not Katushkas, but RS-82s I think) were field modifications, and weren't that effective, just served to scare off pursuing aircraft.

WOW! That Katushka is a good sized rocket! Of which there was no defence for 60 some years.. Until TRW came out with THEL (http://www.israeli-weapons.com/weapons/missile_systems/systems/THEL.html) to shoot them down.

I want a bucket of rusty nails to throw from a bomber.

Can I have these ones too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


And for Tu-2. The most unusual variant (flown and tested in 1944) carried 88 infantry PPSh sub-machineguns in the bomb bay, bringing concept of weapon designer A.V.Nadashkevich (first realized on TSh-1) into it final shape. All guns were fired simultaneously, providing devastating fire..

I don't get it, wouldn't a bomb work better than 88 PPSHs with 71 rounds each?

05-14-2006, 09:04 PM
88 guns @ 15 rounds per second (900rpm) = ~1300 rounds per second http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Each magazine carried 71 rounds. So at 900 rpm, a magazine is emptied in just over 4.5 seconds.

A full firing run, emptying all the magazines would be 6248 rounds delivered in 4.75 seconds http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif At 5.55 grams per round, that is almost 35 kg of lead.

It would be like firing a thunderstorm of bullets towards your target.

The inspiration for Metal-Storm?

Still, wouldn't a couple of decent sized bombs fling a several hundred kilos of steel fragments.
