Dear all,

In lockdown...I'm working on a slight variant on the excellent RA mod by John 3rd, I hope he will agree to like it. I hope that some of you may want to play. I'm hoping that in the changes that I make to this mod there will also should not be any need for any strategic house rules beyond the first turn.

I have been playing this mod in two versions for over four years, it's excellent and seems fairly well balanced (there are a few issues with the development particularly of the Allied side in response to the stronger Japan which I am tackling). And one question I would like some advice on. I think that there is room to develop a few further what ifs not to replace it just make an alternative. Most of the adjustments I am making are based on close to historical discussions had many times before.

One thing I'm working on is Japan developing a slightly better ( over time) two engined fighter (Nick and Dinah) to take on the mid period 4E. There are a few candidates that can be realistically worked into this scenario. One thing I wanted to ask you all is what really affects the effectiveness of a airborne cannon some of the weapons have an accuracy of 3 or 6 where standard weapons have around 20 what kind of level would I raise the accuracy of the large bigger than 20 mm Cannons to show it being quite a lot better but obviously not totally unrealistic. I was thinking of around 8-12?

Any comments will be very welcome.

Accuracy is based mostly on RoF of gun. It might be lowered if gun carries little ammo. Just compare Japanese guns with something of similar caliber, but higher RoF at Allied side.

Nemo made some experiments with accuracy of 4Es guns, and found that accuracy value have low impact for defensive fire. However, I discovered that if you give Japanese guns range greater than 0.50 cal, results gets interesting.

Okay thank you for your help. It's about what I guess. I assume that these cannons do have a longer range than .5 calibre machine guns anyway... Thanks again its appreciated.
