Didn't have one IRL, except to test operation of the actuator.

You mean there was no manual override? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

No. Full automatic rads. There was only a test button for ground level, which briefly opened them until the button was pushed so the pilot would see they worked.

"We've got the finest tanks in the world. We just love to see the German Royal Tiger come up on the field".
- Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. Febuary 1945.

"One day a Tiger Royal got within 150 yards of my tanks and knocked me out. Five of our tanks opened up on him at ranges of 200 to 600 yards and got 5 or 6 hits on the front of the Tiger. They all just glanced off and the Tiger backed off and got away. If we had a tank like that Tiger, we would all be home today."
- Sgt. Clyde D. Brunson, US Army, Tank Commander, February 1945
