So somehow we're getting a less capable P51?

No it is going to have theatre appropriate boost of 72" Hg. It is also going to be a bit lighter, but will most likely lose HVARS, the Monica radar and maybe K-14 gunsight. There is no evidence of HVARS being used by P-51s in the ETO btw.

I don't think ED would remove these items from our P-51D.

There is nothing officially announced from ED...

IMO
ETO Mustang will lost Iwojima equipment, which was not used in ETO.
"Advanced" IFF with its control box and UncleDog with its anntenas.
VHF anntena will be relocated from bottom fuselage to up.
Only these things identify DCS Mustang as no ETO plane and as a late D-20 and subsequent blocks.


APS-13 radar (not Monica, it was ground search radar for bombers), HVARs capability (even they was not use) and K-14 were in ETO too.
So, both possibility keep/remove them are here...

and i hope, NO 44-1 fuel will be added

everithing here is guessing only!

And what about the guns? I thought earlier blocks had only 4 guns, and I have the impression the screenshots they showed on DCS page show only 4 guns. It would be bad to loose two guns!

Not blocks, but earlier models (A,B and C) had 4 guns.
D model (DCS P-51) had possibility to remove midle gun as a reduced weapon field upgrade.
No idea if it was ever used...

As Monica and AN/APS-13 have the same schematic, I'd argue I might as well call it Monica. The antenna array looks a bit different. It's basically still a mere copy of the British radar.

Btw it's gonna be a second version like with the Albatros, the NA-30 will most definitely stay. I think ED have already communicated that it will. And no, only late SN D20 had factory fitted K-14. Our PTO Mustang has a factory model an not a N9 field conversion, so it is not a field modded British Gyro sight MkII which is the original British version of the K-14. I have written several lengthy posts about this whole block topic a few years ago.

Ah that sounds good, I won't say no to an extra version of course!
