Rptd 03/Dec/2017 A6M3 mod 22 is equipped with the wrong cannon

Since there was an incompleteness in the contents of the bug report I posted in the past, I will fix it and submit again.

@KnightoftheAbyss, I appreciate your many help.

 

 

1. This problem occurs in A6M3 mod. 22. It occurs in all game modes.
 
2. A6M3 mod 22 is equipped with wrong version of cannon.
    In historical fact, the A6M3 mod 22 was equipped with the  20 mm type 99 mk 1 cannon.
    However, in the game 20 mm type 99 mk 2 cannon is equipped.

 

3. I confirmed the problem with X-ray display and stat card.

This is the IJN aircraft name list.

A6M3 mod 22 was modified and the variation upgraded to 20 mm type 99 mk 2 was named A6M3 mod 22 Ko.

"Ko" is a symbol for small scale renovation such as change of armed.

  • Ko, Otsu, Hei, Tei = A, B, C and D; first, second, third and fourth

That is, A6M3 mod 22 is the proof that equipped with the 20 mm type 99 mk 1 cannon, like the previous A6M series.

A6M3 mod 22 was modified and the variation upgraded to 20 mm type 99 mk 2 was named A6M3 mod 22 Ko.

A6M3 mod 22 Ko was the first to equip 20 mm type 99 mk 2 cannon, which is explained in several books.

The meaning of "Ko" indicates that the firearm has been changed from A6M3 mod 22.

The difference between 20 mm type 99 mk 1 cannon and mk 2 is the length of the barrel. Mk 2 is a long barrel, so the muzzle speed is fast.
