FW190 A5 armament doubts

Recommended Posts

hello

The A5 model we have in game has 2 canons in the wing root  , however i read its supposed to have 4 . Whats the story here?

afaik it has 4, but optional. the only thing this sim gets wrong is that the default loadout has 2 instead of 4, which you can easily change when selecting your armament, no big deal really

Two MG 151/20 cannons in the wing roots, two optional MG FF ones further out in the wing (out of prop disc), for the total of four. Nothing wrong here.

yes i see i must add the extra wing canons from the mods , so at this point can i make an  A6  model skin and say use the A5 model we have and add the wing canons ? not sure the wing canons are the same caliber as the wing root canons , i still need to check this properly .

A6 carries MG 151/20 in place of MG FF, so its wing cannon armament is similar to A8 (= four MG 151/20s).

yes that is my problem , can i say use A5 model , switch on wing canons even though they are not 151's ? below is an image of a A6 Jg1 Holland using the A5 and 4 canons switched on .

Sure, I don't think anyone will hold a grudge against you for clothing an A5 as an A6. If you take the outer guns out instead of in, they should be identical (apart from some interior wing design differences, which aren't visible from the outside anyway).

the MG FF and 151/20E don't perform the same way, but I think this is pretty neglectable for your purpose

ok so i will add  JG1 and JG11  FW190 A6's staffels to Mission 4 Today in the coming days and add the following in the read me  . To be used on A5 model with outer canon's switched on for realism . JG11 actually used F8's in Bodenplatte which i will do as soon as the template is made available together with JG1 JG3 Udet and JG4 .

Perhaps he means 5./JG4?

Sorry just noticed F-8 instead of A-8.

A8, not F8. F8s were used with the SGs.
