For gun package one you have 2 0.50 caliber brownings with 200rds per gun in the cowlings. These are the same as on the P-51, P-47, and P-38. You also have a 37mm cannon in the nose with 30 rds. For gun package two you have the same 2 .50's with 200rds per gun, 2 more .50's in the wings with 300rds per gun, and the 37mm cannon with 30rds. The .50's good, hard hitting, flat firing, with good balistics. I set the cowling mounted guns out to D650, and the ones in the wing for D400.

The 37mm may be somewhat hard to adjust to for new players used to the .50's and hispanos. Lack of ammo and low rate of fire are a problem with this gun. You will often be just a bit off with one shot, and by the time it fires again, your will be just a bit behind it. You will wreck any fighter with it, but it can be hard to land hits with. I have it set out to D450, but this is personal preferance. To conserve ammo, you'll want to fire 2-3 rounds, and then re-aim. I treat it simmelar to the 30mm in the Bf109-K4.

For external armament you can take a 500lb bomb. I will take it, so I can kill a tank without having to make multiple passes at one, which may leave you vulnerable to enemy fighters. I haven't noticed any serious issues with taking the bomb, and you can always drop it if you are in trouble.
