View Full Version : Why does the Fw190 have CEM?

There was a "little black box" that did all the adjustments. The only thing that was adjustable was the prop pitch, with a button on the throttle.

That'S what it has in 1.11.... or am I wrong?? But there is a big error in the FW-190As. They got a constant speed propeller in FB + automatic mode. That's pure BS. They had the same (similar) VDM Verstellluftschraube like the 109, therefore they should be able to overrev in the same way. But AFAIK the Dora-9 had the VS-111 (or something like that) CSP; also notice the Dora NOT having the prop pitch gauge, so it makes sense. A=Variable+Auto, D=CSP.

Remember before the release of FB when we thought the automatic control was actually going to be an advantage?

That was back when the P-47 was going to show up and dominate.

Man, were we naive back then or what?

I disagree Willey, the paperwork I have shows the BMW801 system to use a Constant Speed Prop, just like we have in FB (this from a NACA document provided by a very helpful community member). That constant speed prop is controled by the Kommandergerat lever (which also controls manifold pressure, supercharger gear, spark advance and mixture control, as long as it has hydraulic oil and up to a critical altitude when it functions less and less efficiently until it stops working).

FW190 'CEM' is better than it has ever been, and appears as close to historic as is possible in this (or any other?) game.

And you can get ~10kph better speed by using prop pitch 100 (rather than auto) to overrev the engine.
