The Me-410 can have 4x7mm/2x20mm/2x30mm in one of its setups, therein allotting 3 groups. The 109G can have 2x13mm/1x30/2x20  as well.

The Fw 190D can have up to 2x13.2, 2x20, and 2x30.

 

The LaGG-3 can have up to 2x7.62, 2x12.7, and whatever is in the hub (extra 12.7, 1x20, 1x23, or 1x37).



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

cool thanks. I was thinking about getting a basic gaming mouse so I can have the side button set to the 3rd group instead of my spacebar.

Note that on some of these aircraft (notably the 109 Gustav and the LaGG-3) running with all three weapon groups equipped is not optimal for aircraft performance.

That's a debatable preference. It may not be optimal for turning radius and absolute max speeds/climb rates, but can be a completely viable load out. I run heavy on these (especially 109 Golf) aircraft and I do quite well with them.

My words weren't meant for pilots who already know better.

 

They were meant for players who think that "top tier modules in all vehicle slots" is the best way to run.

And now the rest of the story.

Since your question has been answered by those that pay attention to such things and the above quotes were added in.

I would like to add.

By all means try different combinations of load outs and see what is better for you. I for one normally go full guns rockets bombs and so on. Yet do demount things based on current matches I am encountering. Example would be the F4U and it's rockets. If my matches are consistently high tier I go with with out rockets, If I am low tiered I go with rockets.

Your experience my differ.
