View Full Version : P39's ammo belt loadout.. a little confusion.

"Only the FAB100 was capable of disabling armored vehicles. Soviet fighter units equipped with P39s did not have armor-piercing ammunition for the 37mm cannon, and the standard issue high-explosive round was not suitable for combating armored targets."
D.Loza: Attack Of The Airacobras, page 316

According to these info, it appears that the Soviet VVS Airacobra units didn't use AP ammo for T9 (at least not widely, if at all). If I'm not mistaken, in game we have included AP ammo for N and Q models (Q10 -- VVS model, Soviet have removed wing guns from that Cobra).

So the G2 isn't the only one with ammo-belt problems. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Anyone have some more info on subject?

when im firing with any M4 armed Corba at a target with "arcade" activated i see only HE impacts.

There's lots of funky belt loadouts...like the .50cal. Why are there HE rounds in there?

There are explosive in the 50cal?

I think those are just tracers.

No check the table that Oleg put out with all the belt compositions. There's a HE .50cal round...and there was a big thread about it. Nobody even knows WHAT a HE .50cal round is since it appears to have been an experimental thing only, with no operational use or mass production. Some of the complaints on the .50cal may be its lack of API ammo.
