Take the FW 190A-9 for example, the MG131s and the inboard MG151s are fired simultaneously. When I change the convergence of machinegun, does it only change the convergence of 2 MG131s or 2 inboard MG151s as well?

As for the Ta-152H1, does the cannon convergence setting control both MG151 and MK108? What if I want to separate the convergence settings of the MG151 and MK108?

Convergence setting for "Machineguns" affect whatever is fired by "Button 1", and setting for "Cannons" affect whatever is fired by "Button 2".

This way you can, for example, on a P47 set outter 4 machineguns at a different convergence than inner 4, since they are triggered by separate buttons although they are all machineguns.

On the Ta-152H you will set a convergence for an 108 with "machineguns" and the 151s with "cannons" since triggers on this plane are, weirdly, switched from what seems to be a common practice on other planes.

Thanks for the info, TT.

Interesting , during all this time i believed that convergence setttings only affected the cannons/MG in the wings and that it didn't change anything for nose or cowling guns

I hear that the convergence setting is applied to the vertical axis too, in other words the guns (including nose guns) are pointed up enough so that their projectiles fall through the convergence point, X meters in front of the plane.

This is true.
