    I think he said 4 seconds burst.
    So essentially 2-3 bursts and a wait

    So to avoid reload at a bad time, you should emty the magazine during the second burst.
    In a ground attack, one long burst should do it. If that wont put a smile on your lips, nothing else from WWII will do

    I’d be more likely to use it against bombers - it has no bombs. You won’t need a long gust against them with 4 x 20mm cannon and 6 0.303in machine guns. They’ll be dust after a half second burst.
    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    Without bombs, it is useless to me
    We don't fly at night-missions on ATAG, and the ground asssisted intercepts (radar) as well as the airborne radar for the aircraft is not in place even if we did.

    I was part of a discussion on ATAG about the airborne radar, and we all agree that it have a very low priority compared to a lot of other stuff which need to be fixed.
    But then again,...so does a lot of other stuff which they have been using time on


    Have anyone wondered how usefull the IF will be in the current settings?

    - Most of us only fly only ATAG!
    - The game does not support "Ground Assisted Intercepts" (realtime radar)!
    - The Airborne radar is currently not developed!
    - We don't have any night missions on ATAG!
    - Bomber streems are usually flying HIGH on ATAG!
    - Bomber streems often have figher escorts on ATAG!
    - The 1F is unable to drop bombs!
