I've talked about this elsewhere but I thought it worth stating again.
For the most part you won't find the Type24 i16s on any map on the UK2 cycle.

The exceptions have been (up until now.) some maps that had the TB3/i16 SPD
combo available. However much fun using the parasite i16s was, this was never the way they got used for the most part. More likely you would see an i16 type24 SPD taking off with a ridiculous 2x250kg bombload on it's own.

I'm almost totally convinced that the Type24 I16 was very rarely armed with the 2 x 20 mm ShVAK Cannon and it's best to keep to just the type18 in almost all circumstances.

Personally I'm a real fan of the TB3/i16 combo, it's a shame it uses the Type24 cannon i16 rather than a ShKAS version, it would be on more maps.

Currently it's only an option on one out of 70+ maps.

Maybe players are afraid that the mother TB3 will roll over, or they will be shot when TB-3 comes under attack?

I'm fairly sure that most i16 s24 SPB flyer don't even know why it's called SPB... :thwak:

What can the early Yaks and LaGGs stand against F-4s if there isn't one overpowering plane to keep the Luftwaffle boys busy? :D
