Thank you for the sites. You are right the "A" is at the end of the name. But unless I didn't see it, there is nothing there saying that "A" means attack, just like I said before like the F/A-18. Yes I did see they call it a fighter attack plane, which still doesn't make sense to me. The plane doesn't fight other planes. But now on the other hand... The F-14, F-15, F-16 drop bombs and they don't have the "A". So who knows.
If we really want to find something out... Why is it call a 117 anyhow? All the other planes in the service go in some kind of number order (just some are F4, F8, F14, F15, and so on, lets not forget the new F22). Why jump up to 117 (which the 117 is going to be older then the F22)
Originally posted by Omen65 DC2002... If they put guns on the F-117 THEY WILL BE WRONG and in real life it only holds 2 bombs. If you take what the plane is in real life and use it that way in the game, it realing isn't going to be that fun of a plane to use.
well if we are going to go for "realism" when have you seen an apache helicpoter with 100 missiles (havent count them but i thinki'm close) in reality apaches only have about 8 missiles ,

It has 8 hellfire (I think) missles (like you said) and 38 rockets, which it has in real life.
But in a way you are right, the way DC did it you will reload once with rockets and missles.
well omen you're absolutly right, its better off they exaturate a little for dc being more fun.
and vilramithrang thanks for the sites!!
if anybody was interested about the apache helicopter's weapons:
Armed with 16 laser-guided precision Hellfire missiles, 76 70mm rockets, or combination of both, and a 30mm automatic cannon with up to 1,200 rounds of high explosive dual purpose ammunition, the AH-64A was developed for the U.S. Army to help counter a numerical advantage in Warsaw Pact armored forces.
wow not bad!!! its better than the dc 1! thanks for the site az :rock:
