at CFS2 Online, there's a fix for the 20mm cannons to make them more deadly for some planes like the Zeros/Lightning cos the "general consensus was that they are too wimpy".

was juz wondering how many of you guys feel it too wimpy and use the patch? Does Wells FM increase 20mm cannon effectiveness also?

Thanks

His patch doesn't change the damage dice, nope.

The standard 20MM for the US does 1*39 points of damage per shell, and the .50 caliber M2 does 1*14. The 714th Test Wing has different values in their "standard components" list; their US 20MM does 1*49 and the .50 does 1*18.4 per hit. I have no idea how they arrived at those values, though.

Hi, Iv flown in the zero a couple of times and can not comment on its 20mm cannon efectivness, the reason being convergence for the bullets is wayyy to long 500m. Can someone enlighten me on how to make a more realistic convergence of say 160m??

Edited for spelling..

Gentlemen ----

Those wishing to get a good rundown on the gun parameters, go to:
http://www.cfsforums.com

and do a search for "Changing Gun Functions" in the TITLES search mode!! An excellent write up on the subject.

Good Luck == Keep 'Em Flying!! == BB ==
