Did someone in that other thread guess weapons mods?

SeVa upper machine gun reloading if I remember correctly - I had several ideas about weapons, but I think I wrote that one smile

I wish I could get that thread back to verify if anyone mentioned anything before you in it... but you might want to start thinking about which plane you want. I'll probably just have to take your word here. smile

On a ontopic note. This sounds like a great feature addition and I hope you guys make some good money off of it as well. It seems kind of biased towards the allies but I am not sure there is much you can do about that.

I do think this is going to skew the server scores even worse since server score is almost 100% ground attack and just about every plane for the allies will have ground attack features where as only the 2-seater/bombers for the cp have ground attack abilities.

Hey many thanks, I will think about wanting a Sopwith Pup wink But really, I'd rather wait if somebody else claims - I'm not 100% sure about my memory. It was late at night and my suggestion was just off the cuff without giving it too much thought. Really puzzled why such harmless thread was deleted.

I am as well. I would love to know why it was deleted. If the mod who did so could PM me if for no other reason than I know what went wrong and can try to not let it happen again.

Up to six guns on the Dolphin. Imagine the power! Imagine the weight! Imagine the drag!

Sounds like a great option for blasting Gothas out of the sky.

The Dolphin shouldn't (and probably won't) be able to mount six guns at once. Historically, new Dolphins arrived with four guns fitted, two vickers and two lewis pointing up at an angle. Most pilots removed both lewis guns, while some retained one. 87 Squadron, removed the lewis guns from the cockpit and mounted them on the lower wing firing forward but these couldn't be reloaded in flight.

The real beast is going to be the modifed Bristol F2B F.II that can be fitted with an extra two lewis guns on top of the wing. That gives three guns firing fowards and two firing backwards! The Albatros D.II should be pretty interesting too with an overwing mounted 20mm Becker cannon!

Should the D.III really have an overwing Lewis? Or is this an error.

It would be nice to have only one lewis on the Dolphin (ie. a three gun configuration) - this shouldn't be too hard. I also wonder if the HP O/400 twin gun option will add a new turret (double mount) or give the plane an additional crew-member...!

I'm quite afraid of the Beckers! But this new system would be great for some of the early war two-seaters (Morane L or F.E.2 both had many different options)! Here's to hoping...

The d2 will make a fun ground attack plane but it wont be good for shooting down bombers or 2 seaters or combat since it is already slow and added drag will mean even a snail will extend away and that is on a good day.

well, it doesn't seem unreasonable to me that a German pilot might have a lewis mounted as a trophy, and for a little extra kick.
