Default Weapon Console Light question

I'm wondering whether this light operates correctly.
With no fusing selected, this light is OFF.
If any fusing is selected, the light is ON Yellow, irrespective of whether I carry a bomb or not.
If I carry a bomb and I drop it, the light stays ON Yellow.
So I have no visual indication of whether my bomb has been dropped or not. Shouldn't the light have different color depending on the bomb state?
For example,
- Red if fusing is selected and the bomb is present
- Yellow if fusing is selected but no bomb is present

Reference:


Flight manual Fw 190 A-8 September 1944
Part 8B Bomb release system
A 4. Armament Panel

Our DCS Anton misses the SAM 77 FW 74 indicator unit (the 4 red lights)
It should be located above the fusing selector box.
This indicator unit would indicate if the bomb is attached or released.
And according to the flight manual this indicator unit belongs to the whole bomb release system.

Compare it with the Dora´s system.

You are right. Not sure whether the missing SAM77 is a bug or due to WIP.
Maybe I should report it under bugs and problems?

I think a MOD could move this thread to the Bug section. You could ask one via PM.
