The 100 mm V-0902 gun utilised a long-recoil mechanism and had a 15-round magazine. It was equipped with a very effective muzzle brake which absorbed up to 65 percent of the recoil energy. It was designed to be particularly compact. The weight of a gun without its ammo box was 1,350 kg, the rate of fire 30.5 rounds per minute. The recoil force was 5 tons. The firing and reloading controls were in the pilot's cockpit.

If only if light tanks in WoT had this.

Compared to bombers, a plane carrying this gun sounds like overkill.

The gun would probably shoot and fly off into the air and smash in the ground, then your plane would crash and burn. Although the Germans did have a 2 37mm cannons on the JU87g2

Well the the notion of packing a large artillery cannon on an Aircraft is not uncommon; B-25H did pack a 75mm howitzer, the Mosquito FB Mk XVIII had a QF 6-pounder (57 mm) anti-tank gun, the Me-410 U4 mounted a 50 mm (2 in) KwK 39 L/60 gun. Mind you there is also the 120mm on a AC130 but thats another story...

May I direct your attention to the B-25H, which I heareby nominate as a potential T8 American ground attack aircraft.

See that big hole in the bottom of the nose?  That's a 75mm gun, and yes, this was an operational aircraft, not a prototype.  I remember reading that there was a version with a 105mm gun as well, but it may have been a 1-ship field modification and a quick Googling doesn't show it....

Always did love that Mitchell...and seeing as the Army actually designated some of them (such as the H model you linked to ) as "ground attack aircraft", I cant see why WG wouldnt take a look at it.

And for the Italian line (there IS going to be an Italian line right?)  how about the Piaggio P.108A with it's 90mm gun?
