B7A2 Grace - Normal Bomb Load

Post by 12doze12 »

Does anyone know what is the bomb load of the B7A2 Grace for normal range (not reduced load)?

Is there an easy way to find the bomb load for normal range of aircraft whose main load is a torpedo?

Hmm, where is that exactly? I'm not talking about the Reduced Load.

That is the Torpedo Load, I'm looking for the Bomb Load within normal range

For example, the G3M2 has a Default Load of 1 torpedo and a Reduced Load of 2x250Kg bombs
But if you use bombs within normal range the bomb load is actually 2x250Kg + 4x60Kg bombs

The Editor doesn't contain that information, be it for the Grace or for the Nell. It's probably hardcoded in the game.

Searching the forum late war AARs it seems the normal bomb load is also 2x250Kg.

Would be nice to have this information in-game [:)]

Indeed.

I checked too and Normal range bomb load for torpedo carrying planes is nowhere to be found. Except in Combat report.

Very minor thing, but...

Normal bomb load is 2x250kg bombs, same as reduced load.

In my mod its 1 x 500 kilo SAP = Naval targets in place of the TT. Using the Load outs rules...much more dangerous, this was a heavy DB type.
Could have added GP option code as I did with earlier DB (not sure at the time why not) but I saw this aircraft as mainly a specialist naval attack only plane.

Also, torpedo bombers can carry 1х800kg bomb when on port bombing mission within normal range. Rng depending on pilot xp decides if they will.

Yes even when you add the load out codes it seems the game overrides in certain circumstances.

I have just fixed the loadouts for my mod
