For Allied tank busting in North Africa, and Western Europe, I suggest the Hawker Hurricane MkIID(for North Africa) or the MkIV(for Western Europe) with the 40mm Vickers cannons. http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/BARC/hurricane.html
For Axis tank busting in North Afric and Eastern Europe. I suggest the the Hs 129B-3 with the compacted PaK 40. http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/LRG/hs129.html
I would love to see a B-25H, but since anti-shipping mission aren't really nessacary, it probably wouldn't happen.
Isn't the Hawker Hurricane coming already in the next update?
I think there is a hurricane in the next update, seeing as they showed a pick of it in their last update (i think this is hurricane...mebbe it isnt)
they are putting in the hurricane, its in the desert rose map
The Hs 129 armed with the pak was a prototype and wasnt be very succesfull so i think the hs 129 with the 37mm pak would be the correct plane
plus the HS 129 with the pak 40 was had a magnetic firing mechanism that automatically fired when it passed over a tank and as far as I know that would be a) chaunce as hell and b) not feasable in the BF engine
No, Hs-129B-2/R-4 had a mechanically fired 75mm equipped with 12 rounds.
The HS-129B-3/Waffentrager was a prototype version that had a electro-pneumatic reloader that allowed a 40 rounds per minute from its 26 round magazine.
None of the 75mm version planes were common, only about 25 were delivered and saw combat but they could kill anything it hit.
Unfortunately the weight of the 75mm gun was not popular as it made the aircraft handle so poorly that it was considered barely flyable. So bad in fact that there was a emergency release to drop the cannon pack in case the pilot got into trouble.
I personally like the Hs-129B2-R2 sine it wasnt underpowered and had a 30mm Mk 101 cannon. Manuverability was good and it could still kill tanks.
What you are talking about is the version equipped with the Forstersonde SG 113A. It was designed to mortar like projectiles downa dn slighty to rear and were activated by npilot flying over a large metal object.
LoffI think there is a hurricane in the next update, seeing as they showed a pick of it in their last update (i think this is hurricane...mebbe it isnt)
Yah, it's a Hurri alright, but not the tank-buster. The gun pods on the IIc are easy to spot.
We only have the version with 8*7.7mm and the one with 4*20mm
Major HartmannWe only have the version with 8*7.7mm and the one with 4*20mm
So it's the Hurri I and the IID.
