Default Rockets and gun pods?

Some say the k-4 could carry them and some say it cant
I know that in the cockpit we do have the buttons and indications for them so why its not in the game?

I think when Normandy is released and we try taking on a squadron of B-17's, those rockets/20 mm gun pods may be needed!

If not, I guess it's up to the FW190's to save the day!

However, perhaps a 262 will come along?

Cheers.

this horse has already been beaten to death in other threads. Rockets and gunpods are simply not implemented, and ED has not made any statement as to whether they will ever be.

I wonder how much the B-17's will be affected by rocket hits. I exercised the use of rockets (in the FW-90) against a flight of C-130 and I got so close that I couldn't misss. It took a lot of rocket hits to actually destroy the C-130. So I hope that the B-17's have a more realistic damage model than the C-130's.

Who knows if they intend to implement at least the gun pods, in fact is a significant lack...
