View Full Version : Bug Report: Ju-87's Fuel Meter

03-15-2006, 03:17 AM
In Il-2 FB+AEP+PF, Ju-87's Fuel Meter seems to have broken.
When fuel remains, meter points out MAX irrespective of the residual quantity.
And if the amount of remaining fuel is 0, meter will point out EMPTY suddenly.
I think that this is BUG.

Moreover, the position of magazine of Gunpod of Ju-87G is a right-and-left contrary.
Cartridges have not come out, either.

I expect that these problems will be solved.
Thank you for reading this.

well, a Ju87D/G has 780 litres fuel !
the fuel gauge is showing 250 litres as max....... so, still with 50% fuelload the gauge is showing its max http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

i didnt test if the Ju87B has still the same fuelamount , that is to much, it had 480litres in real

Thank you, JG53Frankyboy.

It was my hasty conclusion.€€
When the amount of fuel flew by Ju-87D which is 25%, meter pointed out near 200 litres exactly and performed the decrease little by little correctly.
I had two experiences in which fuel meter was suddenly set to EMPTY.
Probably, bullets had hit fuel tank used at the last.
Thank you. Fuel meter is not a bug.

But... Gunpod of Ju-87G seems to be wrong.

-I am poor at English. sorry.
Thank you for reading this.

Whats wrong with the gunpod variant?

Many fuel readers on aircraft seem to only indicate after a certain point. Some Russian fighters have no visible fuel guage (most Yak's) and those that do only tell you when the tank is mostly empty. It seems this is true of the Ju-87 as well.

sure, because these gauges are showing litres/gallons and not % ..........

btw, i also dont understand him what he is meaning with the BK 3,7 pods http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I think Yaks had fuel guages in the wings.

Yes...on on either side of the cockpit and in the wingroot. You can't see them from the cockpit due to the angle.

BK3.7 gunpods

BK3.7 gunpod of Ju-87G has attached Flak18 in the vertical contrary.
Therefore, magazine will reach right-hand side.
I prepared the photograph.
Please have a look.


Ju-87G of Il-2 FB+AEP+PF do not take out Spent shell.
It seems that Ju-87G of a genuine article will discharge Spent shells if a photograph is looked at.

There are planes by which anyone is interested, and uninterested planes.
Probably, it is common to the warplane fans in the world.
Ju-87G may be an airplane uninterested for many people.
But, for me, it is a very interesting airplane.

I am sorry in my poor English.
Thank you for having you read so far.
