Just something fun, not really luftwhining so please take this lightly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif .
I know this is old news for most , but looking at a translated k4 manual on www.bf109.com (http://www.bf109.com) it was with some fun I noticed about a system to spray fuel on the windscreen to dissolve the oil build up. It's a little ironic considering how easy it is to get a black windscreen with both p51's and some 109's if not all after a shot on your hood that gets you blind after crippled.A new key map for this would be a nice addition http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.

VI. Fuel Windscreen Cleaning
A. Description
For cleaning the windscreen panels of oil film and dust, a hand operated
windscreen cleaner is installed (see Ill. 9).
Operation of the windscreen cleaner is only permitted in flight.
Ill. 9. Layout of the windscreen Cleaner
1. Handle 3. Spray tube
2. Valve 4. Cold Start valve
The valve is opened by means of a handle on the left of the instrument
panel; thereby with the motor running, fuel under pressure in the
tubing, sprays on the windscreen through the vents of the spray tubes
positioned at the base of the windscreen. The fuel line for the windscreen
cleaner is connected to the tee at the cold start valve (see Part 7A).
B. Installation and Removal
When changing engines, the required disconnect point is found on
the left of the engine. Should the entire system be removed or installed, it
is possible to accomplish this without special difficulty. Especially to be
noted is that on installation of the spray tubes, they should be fastened to
the base of the windscreen so that the windscreen will be properly sprayed
with fuel.
C. Inspection and Servicing
The fuel windscreen cleaner system is checked by ensuring that the holes
of the spray tubes are not plugged, and so assuring that the windscreen
will be sprayed with fuel in flight on operation of the handle and consequently
will be cleaned. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I think it was kerosene sprayed on the base of the windshield. It should be incorporated into the game, I.d use it often.

The problem with this cleaner is that it is made to remove oil or dust projected by other planes (black smoke) or leak of the engine, but these are not moddeled in the game.

The oil you want to remove is the oil sprayed by a damaged engine.

Do you really want to spray highly flamable fuel on your windsceen with a damaged engine near who can spray flames or sparkles at every moment???

Really ???

Thanks for the heads up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif , live and learn!. I thought considering the airspeed it would be very hard for this spray to inflame, as there would be almost no back flow altough the very dangerous proximity.
