I love when you're shooting the guns on the P34 and the screen is all shaky and stuff. It's a cool effect. Think that could be put onto all the other fighters? I doubt a bomber would shake from some MG fire. Is it not there for a reason or something? Just wondering.

That would be sweet. Along with making their movement sounds much louder. Anything to make tanks much more imposing and threatening, like they really were, is a plus.

They do kinda sound tinny and weak, and the physics model they have makes them look a lot lighter than they were. That would definately be a cool effect.

No, I'm not a WWII P47 Thunderbolt pilot but it didn't vibrate like that, anecdotal gun camera film shows that. In any case this vibration is harmonic which would eventually cause catastrophic failure of the aircraft skin and structure due to chronic fatigue.

Ah, but the P47 had 6 50.cal MG's so it did shake!

Guess you mean resonance vibration and it is different from chronic fatigue.

Ever fired a 50.cal MG ? Let me tell you it shakes , let alone firing 6 together.

It shakes but six .50 cals firing in phase*) don't shake the plane very much. Except maybe for the fact that they decellerate the plane a tiny bit. (unlike the A-10 "Warthog" Thunderbolt which is being decellerated a LOT when it fires it's uranium-depleted 0.43kg rounds at 4,200 rounds per minute, which still doesn't shake the plane because of the high rate of cyclic fire) http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/a-10/

The cannons are most likely positioned in the same plane as the center of gravity of the P47 which prevents negative effects on flying performance.

*) In phase here means that if two cannons fire, the other four are not. I think it works a bit like this: Two cannons fire, two unload the empty bullet casing, two load a bullet into the chamber. Therefor there are only two cannons firing at the same time, making the backwards force considerably less than 6 firing cannons.
