Rptd 16/Oct/2017 P-38 Bomb Release incorrect in RB

The P-38's bomb release should release bombs individually if desired.      The Actual P-38's bomb release mechanism was able to release individually left, individually right, or together.      In Arcade they release individually; however, in RB they release together.

 

They should be able to be released individually in RB as well on P-38 models.

 

Sources are as follows...

This should enable the Lightning to strike Multiple Targets in Ground RB and hopefully when the ordinance is corrected to Historic loads we will see more Teufel in "Der Gabelschwanz Teufel."
