FTP so sorry if this is in the wrong place.

 

Can we have the MG 151s on the Fw 190 reassigned to weapon group two again, rather than weapon group one? Or at least have the option which weapon group they fall under?

 

I'd rather have trigger stage one be MG 17 and stage two be MG 151 & MG/FF, rather than one being MG 17 and MG151 and stage two being MG/FF, keeping the cannons grouped together. I feel that this is much more useful use of a two stage trigger than firing everything by default on stage one, and stage two being reserved for entirely optional weaponry that (and this is a very personal point) I I never use.

 

Thanks!

the Dora series only never has more than 2 wing cannons. that's why the layout is different yes

Did Dora have wingguns? Not as far as I know. At the end of the war the wingguns were also in the Antons quite often removed, to make the aircraft more agile.

Edit:Asgar was faster.

Understood, thanks for the clarification. It's much more satisfying to know that it's for historical reasons rather than just arbitrary.
