Is it just me or does the engine start up for the HE-162 sound like a prop engine for a few seconds and then goes to jet sound ?? I did a search and couldn't find anyone else saying this. Is the sound maybe just a funky engine starter sound ?

While first impressions lead one to believe a mechanic left their lawn mower inside the engine, the start up sound is its correct. The Junker Jumo's had a 2hp(?) motor to spool the turbine up to running speed before jet was started and ran under its own "oomph" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

That's what I kind of thought. Thanks, that makes sense.

wow. That`s pretty authentic. I would never have noticed... but then again, if Oleg hadn`t put in that authentic prop noise no doubt someone would have let him know about it! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif
