Did anybody at Wargaming ever bother to actually look at the armament fit on the various marks of Spitfire, there is no option with the Mk.V to carry 4x20mm cannon, a relatively popular fit with Spitfires operating in North Africa, the Med. and Italy, the Mk.IX could also carry this weapon fit although there is no evidence that they ever did, yet this is the standard load-out in the game for the Mk.XIV which was only ever seen with the 2x20mm plus 4x.303'' or the 2x20mm plus 2x.5''. The 4x20mm fit only became standard with the Mk.21 onwards.

You're assuming they care about historical accuracy, have you seen what they've been doing with the Bf 109?

ye, let's make it historical accurate and screw up any possible balance of the game, why not? :)

Then we will have a topic like "Why this plane is so much more OP then other 1?" or "Why this plane is useless to play against other 1?"

This is an ARCADE game ^^
