Okay here's a couple of questions for you people in the know:

1. Are the 110's engines equipped with fire extinguishers? I get NO response when I select the fiery engine and activate extinguisher.

2. Where is the gas gauge? For the life of me I can't seem to find it!

Just started a 110 campaign and am so far loving it..... although ground fire wreaks havoc on my engines. I rarely make it home with both turning, and never if one starts burning. Thanks guys.

Hi,

110s - fantastic!

Cheers,

Bf-110 is not equipped with fire extinguishers. You only option is to shut down the engine, feather the prop and gain enough airspeed to put the immediate fire out. Since Oleg does not allow manual cutoff of mixture for aircraft with auto mix you cannont cut the fuel flow off to the engine and it will eventually refire.

The fuel gauge is directly behind the control stick, it is unfortuantely calibrated to the Bf109s fuel quantity and remains indicating full even at 25% fuel load around 20% it will start to move.

The indicators marked in kg/cm^3 on the engine nacelles are actually are air density gauges for the super chargers (they don't work anyway). The gauge next to it on the nacelle is a oil pressure gauge as far as I can tell (Only moves when engine starts another busted gauge) and the gauge above it is the head temperature gauge.

As of right now none of the gauges in the Bf-110 won't give you any indication of impending engine failure. The manifold ata gauges never dance around like the 109 nor do the pressure gauges show any indication of a problem.
