Some additional 1.104 notes

Recommended Posts

A couple of changes were made to the weapon commands for a number of the planes, in order to bring them more in line with reality:

 

Fw 190: 

  • Weapon Group 1 now fires the MG 17 machine guns and the MG151/20 cannons
  • Weapon Group 2 now fires the MG FF/M cannons (if installed)

Bf 109 F-4 and G-2:

  • When gunpods are installed, Weapon Group 1 now fires the MG 17s and the nose-mounted cannon, and Weapon Group 2 fires the gunpods

La-5: 

  • Weapon Group 1 now fires the cannons, instead of the old Weapon Group 2

Good stuff.

 

So it's pretty much how it was in IL2-1946?

Is that how it worked in real life? That's gonna' be weird to get used to.

 

Yes

...and now add to the above the following: the Ju 87's 37mm cannons are now assigned to Weapon Group 1.

I'm pretty sure that the 1946 FW-190 fired the MG-17s separately from the inboard MG151's.  Not 100% certain, but almost so, because I always liked it that way.  Can't recall how 1946 treated the outboard cannons on the FW models that had them, i.e. which 'weapon group' fired those.

I do recall that you could enable and disable gun pods.  I think that applied to every plane that could carry them.

 

I'd rather have MG-17 only on weapon group 1 for the 190, personally.  They have so much more ammo than the cannons, you'd think the pilot would prefer the option to fire them separately if possible.  So, surprised to hear that in real life they were slaved to the same firing button as the inboard 151's.

 

Anyway, I agree - very nice to see little details like this being addressed.  Thanks for passing along, Luke!

The MG17s were initially fired separately from the cannons in IL2 but were eventually changed to be like they are now in BoS.

Sure thing!
