Default fire cannon, button

Is maybe a way to have those two controls on the same ( trigger ) button, guys ?
I tried different combinations, but couldn't make it work.
And by the way, is there a mod for Bf 109 K-4 with " clear glass / HUD " for DCS 2.1.1 ?

Thank you

On the real Bf-109 the stick had a trigger for the machine gun, and a button for the cannon. So if you want to be realistick, you should use the same arrangement. On the other hand, if you don't care about realism, if your stick has a 2-stage trigger, like the TM Warthog and the VPC T-50, then you can assign the MG to the first stage and the cannon to the second trigger stage. Then when you pull the trigger all the way, both MG and cannon will fire at the same time.

Or if joystick is not Warthog/Cougar, T50 or X-52 with dual stage trigger, use Joy2key and set joy trigger to press the keys needed for MG and Cannon - maybe need remove the modifier key for "Fire Cannon/Rockets" - simultaneous.

BTW - Since MG bullets and cannon shells has different weight, speed and ballistic trajectories, this may waste ammo outside of convergence distance.
