However, I do not care for the system locking you into the "best" upgrades. I would like to select my own gun/ordinance configuration. I love my IL-20 for instance, but I preferred my quad 23s to the dual 57s because then I could defend myself a little better. But since I can't I specialized it to hit from VERY long range, hitting targets at 1,600+ meters out, which is good too. But I really would like more choice there, and it would work better with the equipment system, giving more variance for each aircraft.

What I absolutely hate is that I can no longer choose what consider top weapons on a plane, not what WG thinks.

You are Preaching to the Choir. Both of you.


But game balance is a tricky thing to pull off.
Running the "optimal" build on a plane combined with access to ALL Specialist slots will make a large list of planes go from "mostly Balanced" to "the new Broken-Fighter". 
Do you want Specialist planes to get a +1 modifier to its Matchmaking?
Because this is how you get it...

So we are stuck with:

New Specialist options, Coming Soon!tm
A New Hope ... maybe.ymmv

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...
