    Is it just me or does the engine start up for the HE-162 sound like a prop engine for a few seconds and then goes to jet sound ?? I did a search and couldn't find anyone else saying this. Is the sound maybe just a funky engine starter sound ?

    While first impressions lead one to believe a mechanic left their lawn mower inside the engine, the start up sound is its correct. The Junker Jumo's had a 2hp(?) motor to spool the turbine up to running speed before jet was started and ran under its own "oomph"

    "As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

    wow. That`s pretty authentic. I would never have noticed... but then again, if Oleg hadn`t put in that authentic prop noise no doubt someone would have let him know about it!
