    Here's some good general info on the plane. Boomerang

    As you can find pretty easily searching on the internet, the armament was 2x 20mm Hispano cannon and 4x .303 Brownings MG's. (with the MG's mounted in pairs outboard of the cannon on each wing)

    What I haven't seen is the ammo capacity.

    Also I think the CAC CA-13 was thw Mk.II, the CAC CA-12 being the Mk.I Boomerang.

    i was wondering what sort of Drop tank they used along with rockets? and bombs

    i think they could carry 500lbs of bombs but im not to sure on that one

    The CA-13 was the Mk II with 95 being built. I have the ammo capacity as 1000 rounds per gun for the 4x .303 MG's and 60 rounds per gun fror the 2x 20mm cannon. Bomb load was 4x 60lb smoke bombs carried under the centre section.
    Wiki has this drawing showing the belly tank.

    Added. see here for a profile of a boomer with center line belly tank http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aircraft-markings-camouflage/raaf-marking-s-codes-9351-2.html
    Also some great line drawings from Graham http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aviation/help-info-boomerang-7839-3.html
