Get them researched in the upgrade tree. Once you've researched and bought them you can equip/unequip by selecting your ordnance or lack of it inside the upgrade tree itself.

It basically works like other upgrades. You research them (if needed) and then equip them, all through the upgrade window. Unlike other WG titles, the game auto-resupplies rockets and bombs, so no need to worry about buying them again for the next match :great: :playing:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

The problem is that I do not see rockets in my upgrade panels.... The plane says it can carry 3.... Is it a level or exp based thing perhaps?

?

 

I took a look at your profile - you haven't flown anything that can carry rockets. The US tree doesn't get rockets until tier 5 with the F4F Wildcat at earliest. You have bombs on all your multiroles, but no rockets.

 

The only planes that get rockets at your tier are the Soviets.

That is a misnomer. What your plane can carry is dictated by whatever is available in the upgrade tab for that plane. The number is rating, not the number of ordnance available to carry. The two bombs on the F2F and P-26 has a rating of "3".

 

By your logic, the IL-10 should be able to carry 29 rockets and bombs from its 29 rating, when it is in fact only carrying eight 132mm rockets and two 250kg bombs for a total of 10 pieces:

Spoiler

 

It should have said "ordnance", but who is going to understand what it means when many keep on misspelling it as "ordinance", which means an entirely different thing unrelated to armaments, so WG opted for "bombs and rockets"...and you have made the case of why it should have said "ordnance"...



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.

pyantoryng:  thank you for your very informative answer.    Don't take me for an idiot though, WG badly worded it not me....
