the bomb bay

It can also carry 2x 350kg Motobomba FFF under wings or 6x 280kg in bomb bay
this is like a "motorized torpedo" launched from the plane with a parachute, after the contact with the water the bomb activates the engines and continue the trip circling in the water till the impact with the target or till the engine dies

English Wiki if you want to learn more.

 

In case you are wondering what that rod on top of turret is:

z_1007_05_1920x1080_logo_c5ede87880d6d5e

 

It is a AIR STREAM BALANCE feature.  The gun barrel acts like a wind vane, so adding that rifle sized bar helps counter the strong air stream, easier to aim.

Of course you don't experience that in the virtual world (yet).

you may note that other a/c have little vanes on their turrets - especially Soviet ones - same thing.

I hope that those bars are modeled correctly, elevating like the gun and not fixed.

"The Z.1007bis Alcione can carry a 1,200 kg payload of various-caliber bombs" - in the news

it should be 1200 kg internal payload and plus 1000 kg external, shouldn't it?

 

Yes . the aircraft could carry 1000 lt less of fuel and add the 1000 kg of external payload (4x250)

there are 2 big problems with the Z.1007.

 

1. - Their left side gun doesn't work. Just it's not firing at all and it does not appear even when manual aim
2. - The aircraft had several armour in many places... in it, armor is non-exiting in the game. It was considered very well armoured

Waist gunner issue, picture shows the default resting position/aim direction of the guns. To actually fire the guns, the left side gunner needs to aim even further ahead and the right side gunner even further back.

Anyone bug report it yet?
