[1.65.1.118] Continued Ju 88 A-4 missing realism bug

I'm entering Tier 3 and here's my current lineup:

I'm definitely keeping this thing until getting the Do217E. From what I hear it is also a part-time dive-bomber? Considering I've been able to shoot down fighters with the defensive guns on the 217J, plus the much better bombload, I think it'll be great to have.

 Ju-88 is a money printer. 13mm shreds biplanes, and it can mow the lawn too.

Multiple times now I've been able to:
Rush the right bridge on Essen
Drop more bombs on trapped ground units that all cluster at the end of the broken bridge like lemmings (record is 9+ kills all at once)

Maybe RTB and do it again if the mission lasts that long.

And that's with the current best payload of 4 250kg & 28 50kg, 2400kg total out of a 3000kg realistic bombload.

Ju-88 A-1 is coming next patch, hopefully that means that a new 3d model with fixed inaccuracies for the A-4 is coming soon too.

That is great news!  And done right!

 

I bet you 1000 eagles that they got the max bombload wrong on the Ju 88 A-1:

Current A-4 has this option.

 

HOWEVER the 88A-1 struggled with that load.  Short wings and 200hp less per engine than A-4 made it very risky to carry max load.

Yes but the current A-4 needs a 2 x 1000 + 2 x 500 option as that is the maximum for an A-4.

 

This option would require raising the BR to 3.0-3.3 (AB) as it is the same bombload as the Fw200 (able to one-shot minibases) on a far better plane. That said, I wouldn't mind the BR raise, it could even be moved to tier II with the A-1 in T1.

The A1 hit the server, now it's the perfect time to get a proper A4 (moved to T2 with 3.0 BR). Correct defense armament and missing bombloads would be great. And then, next patch: Ju-188 plz :Ds

A-4 is supposed to get a HD update next patch according to the rumors thread. I'm not expecting them to fix every mistake with the model as usual but I hope they'll at least correct the defensive armament. Plus I hope they don't pull a Gaijin and decide to go with the weakest defensive armament options for the A-4(which had a few different options for defensive guns and field mods and stuff IIRC) and just give it a bunch of MG 15 or something.

The A-1 has 375 rounds in its forward firing weapon which is probably incorrect

 

375/75 = 5 doppel-something.

 

But yes, technically the entire load of ammo could be used, but difficult to implement such system.

I did/will have to press them for 2 versions of the A-4, an  early and late.

Would be nice to get those rear gunner positions for the A4 to differentiate it a bit more from the A1 (and move it to T2).

Fast, climbs well, good armament (MG81 buzzsaws), 3000kg max payload, great straight line energy retention.

Currently I use the 1500kg bombload for RB Tanks with this thing. It works extremely well at that job.
