Does 120% mix on VVS planes mean something different from say British and US planes? I've noticed I can fly much higher in VVS planes with the mixture set to 120% than I can with British or US planes.

Well for instance the Hurri 2b and Corsair 1A need to change from 120% mix at ~750 meters. The Yak-1 needs to change from 120% mix at a bit before 3000 meters, the Yak-9 needs to change from 120% mix at ~2000 meters, and the LA5-FN needs to change from 120% mix at ~4000 meters. So it made me wonder if 120% mix meant "auto-rich" or something like that for VVS planes. I'm looking at manifold reading and or smoke on external as a sign.

probally should be fixed next patch, rich mix counts as 10% extra trottle the way its modeled in game and why all the usn ac had it lowered to very low alts as well as some others

the zero is the same way and produces more speed up high where it shouldnt then 100 or 80 mix vvs ac the same thing.
