I am keen to add some extra load outs to the Mossie bomber, Hudson and Boston namely 30lb incendiaries in sbcs (small bomb canisters)which were used in many low level raids. Java is beyond me and was wondering if anyone has the skills or experience to add this to the uk medium bomber fleet.

I know slipper did this for some mossies in his bomber command mod back in 2014. I’m not sure if I can somehow use some of his cod files and use them with current mossies?

That, however, is not a Mossie. Neither is it Hudson or Boston. If you guess it right, you'll get a cookie.

As for which, an actual info on how would such a load out look for Mossie, Hudson or Boston look like would help greatly.

Hi
I do know that it’s a Lanc but it was a convenient pic to show the SBCs. Link here to IWM site showing a lot more. There were two sizes of sbc, the smaller would replace the normal 250lb or 500lb (short tailed bomb) used in mosquito bIV or Boston/Mitchell/Blenheim or Hudson. Usual for a mossie would be two 250lb bombs and two sbcs with 8 30lb incendiaries. Same for Boston and Ventura (hudson effectively). Later sbcs would be filled with 4lb incendiaries (about 90 of them) but these were used in the heavies.

You have various SBCs in the Vildebeest and the Whitlwind mods packs. And you can enlist as a beta-tester for the new RAF Air-Ground ordnance pack - I uploaded its first part in the Skunkworks section.
