View Full Version : Question re: erhohte notleistung

02-22-2005, 03:08 PM
Despite the fact that I am an original Wurgerwhiner, it has been so long since I have flown a German mount that I have forgotten the procedure to invoke "erhohte notleistung".
Can someone refresh my memory?

It's in the Controls section as WEP (War Emergency Power).

I think he means the proper procedure as far as it's usage during flight. In which case there are no restrictions in it's use. No altitude or throttle restrictions at all. Just press the 'W' key any time you want extra boost in the flight.

i wonder the same thing, because many times when I use wep in say a ta152 or k4 my engine starts making metal.

I think you're talking about the G 50 boost (i think that's what it's called...) anyways, for this boost, lower your engine to idle, activate it, then leave it, when your Engine goes above 100% it will activate itself, and tadaa, no more grinding parts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think the mw50 water methanol injection caused problems in the DB60# engines.. so it's modelled to blow them if you engage it at over 100% throttle or so. I'm not sure what erhohte notleistung is in comparison (the words just mean war emergency power, loosely translated), but it doesn't seem to blow the radial engines at any throttle setting or altitude. As for the 1944 Fw 190 D9 (that has erhohte notleistung instead of mw 50 in a DB engine), I've never really taken a chance with it. I'm very gentle with the DB engines.

the german boost systems are very different.

"erh√¬∂hte Notleistung" at Fw190A5,6,8,9 , D9early , F8
is a simple additional fuelinjection that enabled the engine to run at a higher manifold pressure. you can activate it at every power setting, and it is also giving more power at every powersetting.
it will be never empty, because its using the normal fuel out of the tanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

"MW50" Bf109G6AS,14,10,K4,D9Late,Ta152
was an injection of a water methanol injection -also enabling the engine to run higher settings.
this boost is giving only more power if your powersetting is OVER 100% - till 100% its only enabled, not actually in use !
in the Bf109 you have fluid for 26min in total , in the 190/152 you have 35min.
you should enable the system at low powersetting, im always at 0% when doing that, otherwise you will damage your engine. AND you have to disable it if its empty, also damaging the engine otherwise !

"GM1" in Bf109E7/Z
it gave the engine oxygen above its rated altitude - so, use it ONLY above 6000m - below you will damage your engine

"GM1" in Ta152
if you reach 9000m with MW50 enabled, hit the W button-> MW50 disabled, hit the button again, GM1 enabled. you will not damage your engine if you do that at high powersettings.

Thanks, errm, vielen Dahnk, Franky!
