I think the most eloquent sentence is: "El resultado fue un horroroso monoplano de cabina abierta, l*neas angulares, ... que funcionaba con dos motores en las alas completamente faltos de potencia"

That reads as: "The result was an horrible monoplane with open cockpit, angular lines ... that was working with two wing-installed engines completely lacking power" (max speed 172 km/h !!!!).

The good news is that the coming of the Sturmovik and the fact that the Pegas was built in Siberia (some thousands kilometers from the front line) saved us from seeing these ugly monsters in the sky!!

NOT TRUE - You didn't just start a thread about my Pegas entry !!!!
I never knew this thing could have such an effect http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

To add something constructive here - In the boot i know the pegas from it says:

they decided that although this plane was intended for ground attack they did not provide armor for the engines because the M-11 was know to take direct hits and continue normal function... wish this also would apply for the DB605 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, those engines were made of wood!!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
And with just 150 HP each, you can't really tell the difference!

The more was powerful, the more was fragile... well, at least sometimes it worked like that!

The web reads that the Pegas fuel tanks could be ejected in case they took fire. That's how they saved the use of self-sealing tanks. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Even so, it had little auxiliary tanks to help the pilot get back home.

And it seems it was somewhat succesful! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
