that only Emil version if hit precisely burns not only from the engine but also from the wing roots (like P-39 for example) - ??

Must have something to do with the GM1 tank! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

that GM-1 stuff was placed in the fuselage just as MW-50 or so. Notice the additional fuselage hatches.
In the wing roots there was not enough place for anything, just for the glycol cooler and undercarriage, otherwise they would fill it with gasoline.

It's a glitch.

I've seen many 109E's lost from burning wingroots...

To improve the range of the Bf-109, 25L Jerry cans were carried in he wing roots.

When getting low on fuel, the pilot would climb on the wing, retrieve the attached hose from a hatch on top of the wing, and siphon the fuel into the fuselage tank.

This arrangement was halted with the introduction of the Bf-109F, due to a number of accidents caused by "rocket plane" stunting popular with 109 pilots.

The resulting image of melted wings twisted by drag resulted in the design of the Me-262.
