Whatever it is...

You certainly don't want a "one hit wonder cannon " against A/C (for dweebery purposes)

Weapons intended primarily for ground attack have reduced effectiveness against A/C to prevent this in warbirds.

So then the 37mm on the aircobra should be an exception. It was primarily used (even in Russia) as an anti-aircraft weapon.

One hit from a aircobra's cannon really should down any fighter and severely damage any bomber.
This is balanced off in terms of game play by the very few rounds available. Most players will have a tough time getting more than one kill on a sortie with cannon.

Hmm, so if it required 1-2 hits to down an enemy fighter according to the Russian ww2 pilot, then maybe a damage value of 50, like all the other 37 mm cannons, would be more accurate. This since the M4 at 30 damage value currently requires 3 direct hits at the same integral part of the enemy plane to fully destroy it, and currently one will most probably need 6+ rounds hitting home since the hits will often be fairly spread out over a maneuvering enemy fighter.


50 would be a good compromise. There's no way it should have less power than the german mk108.
If I player can actually hit another plane with the 37mm,. he's earned a kill more than a guy that takes your elevator off at d8 with 20mm or even 50 cal.
The new flight models make the p39 a better airplane in the game- let's bring the guns up a bit to make it a viable option in the main arena.
