You can not connect 3 500kg bombs or 2 on the Stuka since there are no slots for those.

You can not attach 500 Kg bombs - not even 250 kg - on it´s wings. Only if you remove the machine cannons like they did to attach the 37mm flak 18.

bombs of this weight can only be attached on centerline, and there is only room for one bomb in centerline. However 2 bombs of 50 kg weight each could be done.

All these side state that teh Ju-87D had one bomb of 1800 kg in centerline.

Now give me one side stating the 1000kg bomb!

'LIGHTNING [NL'] I found a lot of sites that said the stuka used 1000kg bombs. .[/QUOTE]

Show them! And besides If I want to make sure to sink a ship and I can load one bomb of 1800kg max, why would I choose the lighter 1000kg instead?!

[QUOTE=MkH^] The 1000kg bomb fell down the "steamtower" and exploded inside the ship. Rudel thus also destroyed a battleship in addition to the hundreds of tanks he hit in the war."

You sure your resources aren't wrong, the_move?

Damn sure! Maybe this 1000kg was a previous proto, but the regular one used by Stuka were 1800kg.

these were just examples (fiction) from me to state that the real bomb load isn't so important than the present of various stuka versions in fh ! dont u get my point ? and here is one proof: http://www.luftarchiv.de/ on the left go to motorenflugzeuge, than junkers, than 87 and at the bottom u find it in the text ;)

i never said that it is not important, but its not so important as the availability of different stuka versions with exact bomb load (what u stated). my point is: more stukas with various bomb loads and maybe 2 differnt stukas on the same map (not as it is now with only one stuka with one 1000kg bomb).
