Suggested details and improvements to War Thunder

They also need to stop with flashing dead enemies on the map, and marking planes being hit on the map, entirely pointless.

I would like to see some improvements to the Beaufighter Mk 21 in the interest of greater historical accuracy and quality of gameplay in this aircraft. These improvements are the alteration of the tail gun from a Vickers K to a Browning 303 as the Browning is a slight improvement which would be more than welcome at its current BR, it is what the Mk 21 was historically defended with, and the in game model currently has the Browning tail gun but it is currently treated as having a Vickers instead for some reason; and the other improvement is the ability of the Mk 21 to be armed with 8 HVAR rockets as it was historically armed with them by the Australians and this would make it more versatile and unique in game (particularly among its other British contemporaries).

Here is a quote I found to prove that this change to the tail gun would be accurate, and the site I got this from.

‘“The Mk.Ic`s that were sent out to Malta and North Africa soon had Vickers K Guns fitted and the rear part of the Obswrvation bubble was removed. Circa 1941/42”.

“This must have been a local theatre modification, and probably not very effective. The standard rear gun for the Beau was the Browning 303 fitted with a special extended “Handle” and multiple (3) ring and bead sights to enable sighting from either side of the gun in the confined space under the bubble. Although the standard RAF free gun was the Vickers K this was considered unsuitable for the Beau as the circular ammunition pan of this gun would reduce to almost nothing the already quite limited gun traverse under the bubble”.’
