The Spit9 had an Automatic 2-stage Supercharger control with an override switch that would put it into low gear (M) if operated (Spitfire IX, XI, XVI Pilot's Notes).

In FB I cannot find this in the Spit9

The Next Stage / Previous Stage controls do not operate in the Spit9 - unlike the manually controlled Supercharger of the Hurricane where it does.

Is the override modelled for the Spit9?

This comes about from my trying to find out economic cruising settings which, in the Pilots Notes, calls for Manual Override (low gear) of the Auto Supercharger.
