Hi welcome to the forums. Anyways im no expert on spits but i can say that in at least some spitfire models, they use gravity fed carburetors instead of the fuel injected German engines. this means that if you pull negative G's ie. pointing the nose down the engine will stall momentarily. so in the battle of britain the spit and hurricane pilots learned to roll over before a dive. hope this helps!

Sounds like IL2:Cliffs of Dover rather than IL2:1946. Try the Cliffs of Dover forum next door at http://forums.ubi.com/eve/foru...corfrm&cf=8071032709 (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=corfrm&cf=8071032709) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
