Default [REPORTED] Bombs on center pylon look strange

I am wondering if the MK82 is correctly positioned to the center pylon. It looks really weird to me, because when the bomb is attached, it looks like the pylon's lower edge has an arc, kind of taking the shape of the bomb. But when the bomb is dropped, the pylon's lower edge is straight. Can't seem to get it.

Seems like the bomb is clipping into the pylon. That's a bug.

from the screenshots it looks, as if the same bug persists for the under-wing-pylons.


i can't remember having seen this bug, so it must be relatively new. there are also some other problems on different aircraft with misalighned ordnance that showed up with the 2.5.1 or something...


*this should be moved to the bug section

Came across the exact same issue on the Mirage too, which I bought yesterday, all the MK82 bombs are like that. And I found that it was already reported in May this year - three months ago - yet no one bothered to fix it, despite being quite a an obvious and significant bug.

As that is 3rd Party, they will need to address it.

Third party or not, it isn't limited to that 3rd Party - it's more of an universal issue as the F-5 suffers from it too. Isn't it something that ED needs to look into?

Its adjusted per individual module, so no.

Looks like the misaligned bombs and/or pylons are still not fixed...
