those 2x 40mm cannons...would the SERIOUS hinder the planes agility and speed? And the recoil must be god-damn heavy...
Well, it handles like a Me109 while armed with two bombs, which is of course faulty, so I doubt two cannons would make a big difference..
Well, BF can't code in payloads affecting performance, so it would have to be bomb load variant always affects it, so it may as well keep everything at it's defaut level considering how much work that would be and how all planes are already at full strength anyway.
BONNZZAAAI FOR THE KING!!! lol.
AFAIK the Mk 2 D flew like an absoloute brick so it would be balanced - it wouldn't be able to operate as a fighter but as a ground attack plane a la IL 2.
