Thi is last mission i flow in VEF:
VEF25449 (http://www.vef2.net/singlemissionstat.php?missionid=25449)
Look at the Savage score, just great. Nothing would be wrong here, except one little thing. All four kills he made with leaking oil.
When 109 start to leak oil, pilot got 1-1.5 minute to land, before engine cut.
But p39 (and many other VVS planes with few exceptions) can fly all day long.
Now, when 109 is leaking oil, it's 100% that his conopy is blinked by oil (which don't happend on most of VVS planes - i know that in p39 it's rather impossible).
And one last thing. When 109 got bullets in cocpit one bullet is always in windscreen infront of gunsight.
At least fix the oil leak in VVS planes. Oleg pls.

you have a pretty good point there. Oi leaking has been a major issue around here lately, and you are right by saying that the P-39 can fly all day long when leaking oil.

Since I actually fly IAR81a in a campaign I can also tell you that it can fly for very long time with an oil leak with suffering from engine failure like the 109

I think the La5's and La7 are ok, I mean by that that they will suffer from engine failure after some time when leaking oil, but here comes the M-105 engine DM related problems again....this V engine really behaves in a unique way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

oh yeah, the AM-35 and 38 are very vulnerable to oil leaks too, a bit like the DB
