OK I count 6 ammo refills in the above picture.

If you have ever flown as a gunner in an HE111 or an IL2 you tend to run out of ammo pretty darn quickly. I realize the above picture is of a Ju88 but I can only assume that the HE111 had a comparable amount of ammo refills for their gunners.

Maybe you could add a little more ammo for the gunners so if we choose to play as a gunner or switch to the rear seat in a campaign or COOP we don't run out so quickly...just a suggestion or though...

In the IL-2, some versions only had a maximum of 150 rounds for the rear gunner. I don't know how much the He-111 had, but I think there is sufficient amount in most of the multi engined bombers to mount a good defence. I often fly the multi engined aircraft, and I believe my best sortie was a succesfull bomb run, and I downed 5 fighters who tried to bring me down. I was seriously crippled, but managed to bring the aircraft back to base, and still had ammo in some of my guns!

The results of a quick test in a He-111 H2 where I timed each gun:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre"> position time rounds
1200rpm 600rpm
nose 10s 200 100
top 63s 1260 630
left 48s 960 480
right 48s 960 480
belly 50s 1000 500
_____ + _____ +
4380 2190</pre>

There's 7 drums there, but you also have to remember there can be up to three MGs in the main cabin, so it's doubtful it's 7 drums for one MG.
