Wish List: BF109 Gunpods and rockets?


Recommended Posts

Thaks for the answers! So.. The depolpers are just simply "lazy"?

I don't found an answer coming from the devolpers of the module saying something solid, i used the chat of the main dcs page, and has no answer, they don't know nothing about it.

Yeah, I see. If Nineline said so maybe it happens at some point, buy it wasn't planned a time ago.

 

S!

 

 

P.S.: the pic is not a K4, not even close. No K4 had the G6 wing bulges. And whatever it is that's a prototype test, not operationally used :smilewink:.

 

Hmm, mind showing me the bulges to me? Because I can't see them. The MG-131 cowling bulges are not present either.

 

Also, you don't have any proof that it was used, but neither do you have any proof that it wasn't used.

:doh: No, it's more simple, not real? won't be there. That's all. Because of people insistence and given those are mentioned in the manuals they probably changed their minds, But there's a manual saying those were to be fitted, it's not a guess despite not a single evidence of it's operational use.

Exactly, you don't see them and they should be there should it be a K4. The "small" wing bulges are from a G model, early G10 the farthest.

 

 

Wing bulge is in the mark, though hard to see, but only watching the small wheel would be enough to know. It's a G because the engine vents, but prop is not correct for a K4, even late G's. And small cowl radiator doesn't match 605AS or later engines. Not a K4 even though main details can't be seen :smilewink: . Probably a G2-4 testbed.

Yeahhhh, nope, it doesn't work like that. Amazing claims requires amazing proofs, and if you would like to see something there it has to be proof of that. The burden of proof is on you, not the other way around. This is a simulator, not a what-if arcade.

 

S!

A real Luftwaffe pilots wish list in 1944 would have been to NOT have underwing gunpods, they were loathed by most for the drag they caused...

Stipulating to the veracity of your comment, as a pretend sometimes sim pilot that occasionally enjoys flying a 109, I would still like to have wing gun pods and wing rockets to mess around with from time to time.

Something to consider though is that the sim doesn't always reflect the exact context in which real LW pilots were flying. These guys were outnumbered 20:1 on most flights, and in that situation you really need every ounce of power and maneuverability just to survive, but suppose you're not wildly outnumbered and even have a good number of friendly fighters in the area keeping the enemy fighter force occupied. Maybe you want to attack some bombers or strafe so ground targets. In that situation it's pretty fun to have gunpods. 

It's not something I'd want to bring on every sortie, but there's a time and a place where it's a pretty nifty thing to have.

They agree but it would be better to have them as an option, as well as rocket launchers, because for example against the bombers they would be very useful. :thumbup:


Yes it would be great to have the gun pods for completeness, the handling difficulties would need to be modelled also.

 

They seem to have been universally hated by pilots. With them fitted you needed your own escort...
