I might be wrong, but doesn't the Mk21 (built under licence in Australia) have an MG fitted in the navigators position?? All the info I can find on this variant suggests it was either a .303 or Vickers k mounted at this position. (I'm not talking about the MkI that was trialed with a Boulton Paul four gun turret just aft of the cockpit). If I'm correct, will this omission be put into the game in a later patch??

From picures I have seen some did carry the rear gun (introduced on the Mk. X in UK production, but AFAIK the 21 is essentially a VIC, but with revised armament). What we are definitely missing is the autopilot for the Mk. 21.

Would be nice though if we could get an mg installed as the navigator just looks at the approaching enemy aircraft with a bemused look. maybe a harder stare might frighten them off!! Something for inclusion in a future patch hopefully.

I guess we could sit and really delve deeper and deeper to try and get more and more realism. But I have to say that that this game has fired me up and I do love playing it! I really look forward to any news and flyable aircraft that always seem to be arriving. Well done the team I say!!
