The FM-2's description (In 'View Objects') states that it has advanced hardpoints for mounting heavier bombs (Heavier than the F4F-3 & F4F-4 which were 100 lbs.) and HVAR's. Yet, ingame you cannot mount such ordinance. It seems especially odd that they'd include that point in the description and not add it into the game though.

Yes the GM Wildcat FM-1 or FM-2/late model aircraft had changes that made it possible to carry such arms and were intended to operate from the small escort carriers along with the GM-built Avengers.

I can't select any ordinance other than 100 lb. bombs x2 and 58 gal. droptank x2. How'd you do that??

That is the late GM FM-2 of which there are two GM FM-2 models, plus a GM FM-1.

That's pretty cool, I never thought to check out the FM-2 ordnance.
Learned something new. :)
