API rounds for M2.50

Recommended Posts

When looking at the plane customization, the M2.50 only has blue (AP respectively solid) rounds available, while the other .50 cal machine guns (UBS, MG131 and Breda) are loaded with blue and orange (HE or similar) bullets.

 

I know that the M2.50 usually fired Armor-Piercing-Incendiary (API) rounds, which were also modeled in IL-2 1946 as you can see a flash and sparks when the bullets hit their target, but they seen to be absent in Il-2 Great Battles.

 

These rounds would be an important addition to the Bodenplatte module, as most Allied planes in this expansion have the M2.50 as their primary armament.

They would also benefit the P-39 and P-40 already in the game.

Just because they show as blue doesn't mean they aren't already modeled as API. The .50s already perform as if they are API as they set planes on fire very easily if you get a good burst in.
