View Full Version : Is radiator damage a part of the DM?

In line engines hate radiator damage. Is that why it's not effectively (or not used at all) in the damage model? I never lost and engine minutes after being hit. Sometimes I lose it after a hit, usually it's black smoke and the engine runs quite a while..

How long should an engine run after being hit in the radiator anyway? I get the feeling that this type of damage is not modelled yet should happen quite often during combat..

It appears that oil cooler damage is in fact modeled in.

I see that wonderfull little effect almost every time somebody even looks at my 109 funny. Shoot the cowl from below, oil cooler damage. Some flak fire, oil cooler damage

Shoot the left wing tip, and hay, oil cooler damage even then!

ok, ok, it's not that bad, but, yes, OIL coolers can be torched, I don't know about the regular water rads though.

Surely some warplanes had self-sealing radiators by design?
Even if afterward the total radiator cooling was less....

the DM of oil radiator on IL-2 is coded, even Germans told after short time alsi fire should appear..
oil radiator on P40 is also vulnerable

damage model of big oil/glycol radiators on Hurricanes, Yaks, LaGGs is not coded, also glycol radiators in Bf 109 wings. Oleg please!

Very well, but they should also model the cut-off switch for the 109.

Pilots in the Bf-109 were able to isolate a damaged radiator and prevent coolant loss.

yeah, not modeled for liquid just oil
the 109 had oil cooler on nose i think, underside, and it had oil pipes and stuff infront of canopy. in late war quality was pretty ****, tended to break and coat canopy with oil

Of course, it would mean that we would be more vulnerable than we are now but It would be nice to be able to shoot down enemies just by firing a small burst anywhere where the radiator pipes are located... Easy kill, maybe like in real life.

I also think it is strange that the dm is not developped to its fullest. Too hard to code?

Radios, compas, oxygen bottles, landing gear hydraulic, flaps, canopy jammed etc...

only 109F had separate glycol circuits
i vote for getting oil on the windshield from close damaged target - you piur it nnto LaGG and small droplets of oil flicks your canopy..

Also the fuel jet that 109 pilots used to clear their canopy would be great http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
