P-38 had 4 browning .50 cal mg's in the nose as well as 1 20mm cannon. Additional .50 cal gunpods could be added to the wings in some versions, this adds four more .50 cal mg's. Cockpit visibility should be excellent, so should the power of the guns. There's no need for convergence because the guns are already on the nose! The versions we're getting will not have radar installed. Not sure about engine armor, but It is very maneuverable, just remember to use the dive flaps when diving! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Because else you'll fly that fast that you'll loose both them wings,and the tail and you'll be all allone in just a little cockpit hurling down to earth at aproximatly the speed of sound(if you come from high enough)

It is called compressability, and basically if you dive too fast, the shock waves off the wing push up on the tail & "tuck" the nose under. That means the faster you go, the harder it gets to pull the nose up.

The P-38 as Gibbage has pointed out was a tough airplane. Good armor, was difficult to bring down, had two engine reliability that you don't get with a single engine, could sustain many a hit and continue flying.

Armament is wide and diverse. Includes gun pods, bombs, rockets in bazooka tubes and zero length, and the aformentioned 4x Browning .50 caliber and 1xHispano 20mm cannon (well, the US version of the Hispano 20mm). Firepower will be awesome on this bird...

Hmmm, I think not as good as that. Look at the canopy bracing. It had rollup windows like an automobile and, because single piece plexiglas canopies (ala P-51) had not been developed, there's alot of metal to obscure your vision to the sides. Take that and throw in a very sizeable wing and fairly massive engines on each side of you protuding forward of that large wing and I think you begin to see just how much you can't see. Anyone who has flown the P-38s in Janes WWII Fighters or CFS2 can tell you. Don't get me wrong, I've been looking forward to getting a flyable Lightning for some time, but just as with Richtofen's DR-1 triplane, I was always amazed at how America's top scoring aces managed with all that airframe in the way.
