Yeah it must be a mod, Stock would not have Ki-49's carrying Torpedoes, although it could very well carry a torpedo as the maximum load is 2,200lbs, but I don't recall any times it ever has.

Did you ever divide your Helen's unit in 3 fragments A, B ,C and recombine it later?

I don't know but recently, i had a strange bug.
I discovered that many of my fighter groups had not the good weapons.
I show you some screens:


Good A6M2

Bad A6M2


Good A6M3

Bad A6M3


Good Oscar

Bad Oscar


Good Tojo

Bad Tojo

My opinion is that this bug may appear when i recombine the 3 fragment A/B/C in 1 unit. Sometimes (i don't know why only sometimes), the change in weapons appears.

And it occured at least once with a bomber unit.
One day, i discovered that one of my Lily II unit (upgraded from Lily I) had 3x250kg bombs. It shouln't.
In my game, the Lily II must have 8x100kg bombs.
I was surprised. But now, i understand.

Perhaps the Helen had the same trouble.

Has your Helen's unit been upgraded from an other plane or not?

Yes they were upgraded, but they upgraded from LILLYs to HELENs.
