The down fall of the 50 cal rounds is that they are not  incendiary.
Interviews with WW II pilots showed that  incendiary ammo made the P51 a brutal
aircraft. Maddox would not have any of that in his Russian based Sturmovik 1946
and it seems they will not be a birth of them in GB. Word Of Tanks is a Russian based
game as well and all the Russian Tanks over all are superior to American tanks.
Russians have made it clear they are bias when it comes to American structure.
Seems German and Russian aircraft are allowed to follow WW II protocol except
American.  :unhappy-059:

Either way, the improvement of a faster round, heavier and more accurate dispersal pattern makes flying US aircraft loads of fun..


Jim, I wish you would come out and fly with us on-line. There is safety in numbers. 
Between Bear and myself, we have you covered.


Last night, on the new Dingo Server, we basically sank a tons of boats and ships, Bear got ACE in a Day and lots of ground targets.

Too much fun all to ourselves.


Dont be scared!
