View Full Version : Few questions

ok im at work n got a few questions bout fw190s etc
What exactly is ATA ? Is it similar to allied boost pressure ( ie 25lbs ? )
Does the bomb rack on the 190 affect flight perf/ can it be removed?
i usually engage 190A9 boost with throttle at 0% then throttle up is that correct?

cheers in adv

ATA is atmospheres absolute. 1 ATA is about 14psi or 1 bar.

I Fw190 rack is supposedly there but does not affect flight performance if nothing is hung on it. Some programming oversight that never got fixed.

Supposedly, the boost doesn't kick in until you have rammed the throttle to the max. So if you hit it at 0 or 50%, nothing happens.

yeh i heard somewhere before that if you engage boost above 50% throt or so it can screw the engine

Bombracks do affect planes handling/performance on early versions on 190 (4,5,6), so if you are going air to air keep this in mind and try to avoid taking version which adds rack (like version where you have outter guns removed, which historically improved performance, but in '46 you get the damn rack, which decreases it. Ironic...)

Only MW50 can damage engine if you engage it at high throttle, however it only engages when at 100% or over. Fw190A-9 does not have MW50, so feel free to engage WEP whenever you want. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
