Hi Oleg,

After doing some research on the Spit's, it is on every book or report, that Spit couldnt do flat dives due to neg. G's, wich would result in engine cuts. This was one of the ways for the BF's (E and F) to speed away from them. Made a nice map with the 1940-41 planes, but i notice that the engine wont cut, whatever u try with the Spits. ???

Maybe its me, but in the upcoming patch, could this be fixed please? I know i cant outturn the Spit, but on a flat dive i should at least have a change to get away, and start the attack again.

Thx for any reply http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This applied to the Mk1. We have the spit MkV here. As you can imagine, the brits fixed it when it became an obvious shortcoming. See hurricane MkI vs Hurricane MkII in FB to understand the difference.

Then your books are only about the Early war Spitfire, not the ones that are in IL2 FB.

Most MK I's and essentially all of the Mark V's had either been retrofitted or had redesigned systems to counteract the negative G problem.

This was a problem during The Phoney War in 1939 with the Hurricane and The Battle of Britian in 1940, however, by September I imagine most Spitfires had some kind of retrofit done on them. The retrofit wasn't perfect but it helped...

The neg G inflicted on carburatorfeed engines.
Germany and Russia got injectionengines.
I dont know if the american and english planes got fuelinjection before 1945.
They used multiple flotteurs? instead.
You can see that when a spit or a Hurri rolls,
it blows black smoke when the carburator is feed from more than one flotteur.
The speaker on an airshow told us that in Israel 1977.
