Does anyone know if this was a prototype or if it actually served & where? Google didn't help me much here nor did the object info from IL2.

Any info much appreciated. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

there were some with JG2 and JG26 early 1941 at the channel.

i m using it to "fake" a Bf109E-7/N .

Was there a "Trop"-version too?

About the /Trop versions: I don't know, but the main change would be adding a filter. I do not, however, recall any mention of /Z-Trop fighters.

Franky: How does the 7/Z compare to the 7/N performance wise?

Here's the link with little info about Marseille's JG27 Bf109s. They apparently used E7/Z Trops..

as the -/Z was a special high altitude version of the Emil. i doubt it saw action in Northafrica with JG27 with a -/Trop version- but i know it not sure.

the -/Z should be 60-100km/h faster betwenn 8000-11000m than a "normal" -/N.
they had 30kg of GM1 fluid on board - that was enough for 5 min use (it needs 100g/sec). the fastest speed was reached after 2min use of GM1 after activation.

i never tested in game how long GM1 in the -/Z works.

Thx guys - those links show only E-7s but not 'Z'-models - I take it there were none serving in the Med. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
