Thread: Death by Z-Stoff & T-Stoff (Me-163 fuel) | Forums

    Don't know if this has been reported before or not but I thought it was indicative of the level of detail in this sim.

    Some of you will be aware that the fuel used in the Me-163 was a mix of chemicals that would disolve human flesh & bone on contact (Nasty stuff). This is the first sim that has simulated this byproduct of a fuel leak.

    I was flying the single mission for the Me-163 in AEP and whilst taking down a few B-17's got two fuel tank leak messages. I though OK so my flight time will be reduced, so I climb for alt so I could intercept with zero throttle. I've had a single fuel leak message before but never two, one after the other.

    Whilst climbing I noticed my view getting slowly red (ie injured pilot) Every 5 seconds the screen would become more red until I got the pilot died message. The only damage to my plane was the fuel leak.

    I'm amazed that this 'feature' exists in the sim. I can only assume that a single leak is not fatal but a double leak where both Z & T-Stoff can mix will lead to a melting pilot.

    The propellor is there to keep the pilot cool. Switch it off and watch them sweat!

    I found the same results with a simple fuel leak. I also found that if you use the fuel up after recieving a hit and getting a fuel leak... you will not die of wounds.
    Great aircraft to fly againest the Bombers though. I can knock down about two... to three bombers with the ammo load. I love the way it Zooms and gains altitude.

    Great reading material Tenmmike... the Me-163 must have been something else to fly at that period of time.
    Thank's

    Realistic choice: nobody wanted to fly them in real war.
