my favorite air craft is the b17. i have been in one of the few b17s still flying. in multiplayer the b17 only has 8 1000lb bomb. real b17 could hold 4 2000lb bombs. if you know why please tell me.

to learn more about the b17 and the one i was in go to www.b17.org (http://www.b17.org)

Many planes do not have every possible loadout modelled for them...FW190's are missing the Panzerblitz rocket system for example, Dora's are missing their bomb racks etc.

With all the detail in the sim, it's no surprise to me that certain loadouts are missing...I doubt there is time to model everything possible and probably not even everything that was common either.


Just a thought on why it's not there, your guess is as good as mine.

Cool link btw

I flew on Aluminum Overcast twice (differant times) in "payment" for working on it when it stopped over at SFO (where I work) the two times it was out here on west coast. A big, loud, shaking machine. A DC-3 on steroids. That thing can generate cracks pretty damn fast. A really FUN airplane . . . really. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
