I wish you can add bombs and rockets to the p40 but sadly they removed the rockets :(. So there is no more ordinance that the plane can carry besides its 6 50 cals. But I guess u can buy the soviet premium p40 105 since that has 60 cals and rockets its as fun as the p40. That's the good side :D

I feel your pain. I was able to get 4 rocket kills before they dropped the ordnance due to game balance. But, can be an awesome fighter if you take the time to climb high then get some boost back while you head to the battle zone. The aircraft is just not for "turn and burn" down low most of the time. Altitude and speed is the key and "Zoom and Boom" after you clear the heavy fighters up high. But each battle can present a different set of circumstances so adjust accordingly and load some Engine Tuning and Aircraft Polish. Light Airframe can be very helpful. GL

Not just the Warhawk, the entire Mustang lineup used to be able to carry rockets...

 

HVAR Mk.25 OP on 51D and H, must remove...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

 then they need to add another in the role it served in 60% of the time  even without rockets or bombs Many was the day Fighters were deployed on strafing runs  Remember the ARMY AIR CORPS was a support unit for the Infantry at the onset.

They just need to get rid of the multirole class and bring the ability of planes to carry ordnance like they used to.
