Radiator damage for inline engines in included in the overall damgage according to the Maddoxteam, but I havnt the feeling that the Yak is more frequently overheating than the La or forced to emergencylandings because of this.

I have experienced the same for the FW/ME109 though the Me:s engine cant take much damage but that isnt a radiator damage, it must be a overall engine damage because of the oil on the windshield?

The reason bf 109 engines are so easily damaged is that the oiltank is very large and located just aft of the spinner, therefore it is likely to be penetrated by frontal attacks. Also cooling problems plaqued the bf 109 design from the moment they switched to the daimler benz engines.

Lagg3 had no less than 5 weak spots in its engine, very easy to dispatch... I don't have that impression right now.

Because LaGG-3 does not yet have a complex damage model.
