tried out the ammo load of the beufighter cos it seems u run out soon. well u do cos its got 12 seconds or slightly less. should have 240 or 283 rounds per gun, hispano uses 10 rounds a second, offwhine i fired it all in 12 seconds. user stat didnt work offline just shows zero :\

onwhine i get 500 rounds fired, 500 devided by 4 (4 cannons) is 125....

http://www.xs4all.nl/~fbonne/warbirds/ww2htmls/brisbeaufight.html shows 240 and 283...

dont know why aussies would half there ammo IF it is correct http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

It should be 200 rounds each for the 20mm and 300 each for the .50 cals

Maybe that loadout was a option who knows, the specs acualy say that the ammo tank must hold a minimum of 200 rounds each for the 20mm.

i think mossie took 240/283, its probably a standard ammo feed, they where installed in a similer way i guess

well, counting the rounds with user STAT is working only on dogfightmaps, on- and offline

the MAddox team isnt known to have always the correct ammoload in new planes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif , so, find a source and send it to oleg. mostly they will change it (like in the past Wildcats, Zeros , Bf109 ......) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

btw, anyone has sources about F2A-2 ammoload ? in 3.03 every gun has 250rpg ?!?!

The standard load of early VIC Beaufighters was 240 rounds per cannon. On versions that dropped the wing guns (for extra fuel) this was normally increased to 283. 240 rpg was carried through into the TF.X and given that the 21 is a sort of VIC/TF.X mix then I would assume that it should carry at least 240 rpg for the cannon.

AS i recall we have an Aussie version of the Beaufighter. Didn't the Australians mount thier BEaus's with a locally manufactured Hispano with a shaved breech block that increased the ROF?
