I was wondering that was B25 able to carry "only" 3000lbs (~1350kg) of bombs?
I'm asking because He H6 can carry 4000kg (~8800lbs) of bombs and B25 looks like a bigger plane to me. And 1350 kg is not even nearly enough for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Gawwad,
Yes it seems kinda small to me also, when a corsair can carry that or more, but it looks right, check here:

Hmmm...
Thanks for the reply.
The B25J version showed in that site has 12 or 18 .50 cal guns and the one in game has 6.
Not sure if it includes the gunner guns also.
well, it would be cool to have like 6000lbs of bombs so i could make a bigger mess.
One version has the maximum bomb load of 5200lbs, that wouldbe something!

3000, or 3200lbs (2x 1600lb)

there was wing bomb racks that could be fitted, they could carry 2000lbs all together, so u could theroeticaly take 5000lbs, i dont know if it was actully done at all. b25 was designed to have 2000lb bomb bay btw

u want bomb load?

The bomb load of the real B-25H's and J's was 3200 pounds, earlier versions could carry a maximum of 3000 pounds.

The B-25J with the solid nose had eight 50 caliber machine guns in the nose, two more on either side of the cockpit in external blisters, the top turret contained two and could be turned forward to fire forward, one on each side of the aft portion of the fuselage and two in the tail stinger giving a total of 18.

Glass nosed B-25J's had one flexible 50 in the nose and one or two fixed 50's on the starboard side of the bombardier's compartment instead of the eight machine guns in the solid nose version.

The B-25 could also pack the MK-13 glide torpedo, 6 HVARS (3 to each side of the fuselage) or a pair of tiny tim rockets. Later in the war, the crews in the field usually stripped out the 75mm gun out of the G & H models. I have pics somewhere of this, wonder if Oleg will expand the armament for the '25?
