View Full Version : Gun question on wing mounted planes

When setting the convergence for the P-47 wing mounted plane and staggering the convergence the Machine gun button is for what 2 guns the inner or outer and the cannon button is for what the inner or outer guns, thanks

F2, press Weapon 1

then, press Weapon 2.

But IIRC, the MGs are the outer pair and the "cannon" are the inner pair.

Or it's the opposite.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

just fire all of them at once. Frankly, I don't understand why they did it that way.

Possibly, because this way you can harmonise them differently:

What Daimon said. Convergence is key with wing mounted guns. If you set your CV for 250m, then your optimum firing range is about that, + or - 50m, approximatly. This limits your strongest hitting power to 200-300m. (< Just an example, CV varies by taste)

With the ability to have different convergence between them, you can set 1 for say, 350 and one for 250. Strongest fire will be about 300, but your pattern has increased (200 to about 400-450), making for a slightly weaker hitting power throughout the range but increasing overall effective range. It's all about options, and I'm glad Oleg gave us this ability.

Standard setting for wartime P-47's was 250 yards for inner bank and 350 yards outer. This gave the best cone of lethality, also works very sweet in game. Remember this is yards and not meters, so convert to get your figures, if you want to do some trials. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

In p47 I like the convergence 400m for first guns and 250m for second.

At 400m the 250m convergence get a nice spray
and vice versa.
