Looking at the limited pictures I have available some indeed do have 4 guns on the Starboard wing and 2 on the Port as the bays for the other 2 are occupied by the landing lights, Indeed the Void does have the Upper Right hand Bays inplace for the Guns, but not the ejection chutes on the underside.

I can skin this in NP but does anyone know if the Mk21 actually carried these extra guns, they wont work in game, but i would like to add them iff correct and if this is the case i will email it to Oleg as a bug too..

The 2 WIP progress pictures show the wing modified to incorporate the 4 guns on the Stb side and I have copied the panelling to add the chutes, but as for how accurate they are, well I am in your hands..

Oh BTW Ignore the green bits underside and the odd looking bits here and there, I ain't got to everything yet, I do bits at a time, but its starting to come together http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I believe it was only the earlier marks that had the six machine guns. Here is a pic of a Mark21 at the Australian National Aviation Museum http://www.aarg.com.au/images/beauA8-328lge.gif

IIRC the assymetrical 6 MG configuration comprised of six .303 calibre machine guns, and not .50 calibre. Therefore, it is correct the way we have it.

Ok, the early production run Mk21s HAD the 6 x 303s, but soon went to 4x50 cal, so either way, its correct

Hope theres SOME kind of plan for the Beau in at LEAST the 304 patch?
AN AI gunner OR a viewable rear cockpit OR a verbal rear attavk warning OR something, anything!

Ya - what those guys (^) said. I've got to admit I'm kinda stuck in a MKVI rut. . . no . . . no . . . wait . . . ya, that's it . . . you've all passed my devilishly clever Beaufighter trivia quiz.

BTW, I love how your skin is coming along.

I'm sure you'd be a nice lad and release a .psd template. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
