Hello. Love the mod and my first post here. There is something bothering me about the new stuka. Mainly the 1000kg sausage hanging off the bottom of it. Now as far as I know the stuka never carried that kind of bomb before (too heavy for 1 hardpoint) Now I could be wrong (probably am). Could this loadout be changed to 3 250kg bombs or 1 500kg bomb and 2 250kg bombs or something like that? The stuka looks rather ridiculous with that 'thing' hanging off of it. Thank you.

The Stuka could carry a 1 ton bomb.

Whatever, 2 500s makes more sense anyway, as the 1000 kg bomb was used to destroy buildings. Also, it gives the Stuka more time out there tank killing. I prefer the 500, but the 1000 is good too though. Fun at least when you can take out 3 tanks at once.

Here you can find the STUKA versions with their armament:

Besides there never was a stuka with a 2,205 lb. (1000 kg) bomb.

The D Version even had a 3,968 lb. (1800 kg) bomb in centerline.

The B Version had a 500 kg in center and 2 x 50 kg on each wing.

I'm not sure, but weren't 1000kg bombs mainly used against ships? I got that expression from H.U.Rudel's Stuka Pilot book.

I think they were used against all targets that "needed" a 1000 kg bomb. That can be a ship or buildings, etc... No tank needs a 1000 kg bomb to be destroyed. It would be a waste of ressources. In FH its different. The best target in Gazala is the Matilda II, so it should be the filst choice for all Stuka pilots.

The only thing that annoys me is that now ALL Stukas in the mod carry 1000kg bombs. Variety would be nice. :)
