Default Gun pods and cluster bombs issues

I was looking at the Ju87 and it has a load of 3x ab-250, quite handy to drop on enemy airfield. Ju88a4 has no ab250, can we get a 4 or 6 ab-250 load out to drop over enemy airfields?

Also the bf110C4 has ab-250 but the E and F dont? This doesnt make sense unless its a historical date issue.

And the Ju88 with w81 pods cant carry any internal bombs? Shouldnt there be internal bombs such as sc 50 or sc 70 that could be dropped over the field as you strafe with the pods? Pods are also not jettisonable and pilot cant look around once viewing thru the sight.

Bf110G 37mm gun pod still shoots extremely low, can the sight be altered or make it shoot higher up into the reticle??

Ive seen a single seat 37mm gun pod equipped on videos from IL-2 BOS so if its available can we get a single seater with 37mm gun for old IL-2.

Ptabs, need to bring them back for use in straight winged 2 seaters, have a in service date for July 43 and later.

On the Ju88 gunpods - there was no way of using internal bombs in reality, as the electrical system was taken over by the gunpods.
However, they could carry 4 pods instead of 2 (innermost and outermost racks) plus any unused wingracks could take 'loose' butterfly bombs (roughly equivalent to an AB250 on each one). Also the pods could be jettisioned.

Are you sure there were PTABs on early IL-2s in a previous version?

Ptabs were removed in one of the 413 patches. Prior to that were always available,413 updated lots of Russian bombs.
