View Full Version : AI I-153P wont take off in 4.08m FMB

Just testing a mission in FMB and a flight of 4 I-153Ps wouldnt start engines and take off.

I checked fuel but that was OK . Would fly from airstart OK. Changed them to Spits and no problem , all fired up on runway.

should I get an electrician to look at the magnetos? Or is it a bug?

They work fine here, tried them on the new desert map, everything A-OK http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just re-tested,153's work fine on Kuban map.

On Italy map they will fly out of Naples, but not Genova (C14) airbase.

I took no2 in a 4 plane flight leader would not start. mags selected OK, but just got "Engine off " message every time I pressed "I" start button.

More tests show the I-153M62 and all I-16's are also affected.

The workaround is to place "Test runway 4" at this base.
