These manuals were one part of a training series put together by Jimmy Thach. There are various videos floating around the internet which match the titles of these manuals. Excellent stuff if you want to know how USN and USMC pilots flew and fought in the Pacific.
I was wondering if someone could answer some questions on the implementation of WEP on the PROP_ENGINE system type?
1) Was this system fully implemented in SFP2 or have more recent patches broken it?
2) The WEPTimeLimit= parameter - does this actually work?
I've been trying to figure this out by creating engines with almost zero "SLPowerDry" and giving a reasonable level of "SLPowerWEP". The hope is to test if WEP is actually working - the idea being to get the aircraft to takeoff and climb for a minute or two at WEP power before seeing power suddenly drop off as WEP runs out. All that happens is that the plane struggles to even move on the runway with almost zero thrust - WEP never kicks in, effectively giving a 0hp engine.
If anyone has any clues or can even share the engine section from TK's P-51D as an example that'd be great.
Did anyone else know about this US WWII AAM prototype? I stumbled across it while looking up info on the mythological Tiamat.
