I agree, the Camel in RBII/3D sucks tons. Actually, my favourite in that game is the Nieuport 24. I especially like the modified version that has the Lewis and Vickers combination, it's more believable. But you still have two guns. The main reason I prefer the N24 is that you have some idea based on how often you reload the Lewis) on how much ammo you've used, and can plan accordingly.
Too bad we can't have the version of the camel that had this arrangement.
