I flew today in VEF in LA5 and dive with BF 109. I had 100% prop pitch, 100% power with Bost and cool engine. After a few seconds at 650 km/h my engine rapidly overhaet and broke. Wow!!! There was no info about any changes in prop pitch modeling in Lavochkin. As i remebmer engine before patch not break at these settings.
I check other russuian planes Laggs, Migs, Yaks but engine not broken like La5. So should engine break in all planes with prop pitch 100% and full power in dive? Maby in next patch other engine's will be broken too like in LA5? At now only Bfs, Fw190 and LA5 has broken engine at 100% pitch in dive. Has any info about it?

P-11 engine break TOO - but even at low RPM (back throlle), P-11 has constant wooden propeller. Manual says that P-11 max safe dive is 696 km/h, in FB engine break at 500 km/h http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It is not good to run any engine full power with low or no torque load.
