I think I've seen this mentioned before but now I can't find anything about it. Is this a bug? Is there a workaround? I'm making sure that I don't over-rev. the engine and I've tried it in quick combate mode without any problem, so why do I keep blowing up over Leningrad? Perhaps I deserve it...

actually all the aircraft in the game have a breakup speed. When the airplanes go fast past there limit, they start breaking up, and if you fly it fast enough they'll just plain explode. Not a bug. In fact i had a paper with some of the aircrafts break up speed, but i lost it, otherwise i would post it on this.

It is a bug, because you can't do anything to prevent it. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not. Preventing overtorque helps, as well as not pushing negative Gs, but you'll explode anyway in more than 50%.

Besides that, P40M was used in pursuit-units, due to it's high dive speed, so please, no discussion about bug or not bug, again.

It's allready fixed and I just can't wait to get that patch, since I fly mainly P40, P47 and P39. =/
