    I have no personal knowledge about this, but it seems quite plausible. Early Lancs did have ventral turrets but they were pretty useless and often dispensed with and the space where it was located was eventually taken up with the H2S blister. Some crews would field modify a gun into a bottom hatch for defense but again it didn't really work all that well.

    NCooper and MJahn thank you - as they say when all else fails read the manual. I obviously glossed over that part of the ReadMe. Re the red section on the Spitfire or Hurricane boost gauge - this was because those early Merlins had a geared fixed supercharger which worked off the manifold pressure and throttle settings, there was probably a point where low throttle settings could have the supercharger delivering too much boost at particular throttle settings giving you a No No, that is low rpm and excessive or high MP, the red line area on the boost gauge. These superchargers were different to the American ones and the later Merlins which were controlled by a separate mechanism to change or control the supercharger HI-LO, that is the gearing or boost could be controlled separately if...

    It took some digging, but I have a theory about the red arc on the boost gauge. Mind it's just a theory, since the Pilot's Notes are not all-inclusive. The diagrams in the Notes show the red arc running from approximately +2 to +6 boost. The Bev's throttles were interconnected with the flaps for what appears to be "go around" protection. If the flaps were selected full down and the power was advanced beyond +6 boost, the flaps would progressively retract until reaching the 20 degree position at +12 boost. For this reason, it was impossible to extend the flaps fully down when the boost was above +6, the top of the red arc. So that's a possibility, although it doesn't explain the bottom of the arc :indecisiveness: Thanks for the paintkit, MJ! BTW, JanKees...that paint looks...

    Sundog, Looks about what I have on the fuel numbers per tank. I did notice the PPH flow being off on the gauge (FL250, 380kts, 550# per side seems low). Agree on the little things like adding the GPS to fly the Mach Loop in the LN -15E! Zsolt, outstanding paints again, hope you release these!

    RobM replied to a thread Cera Sim in Prepar3D
    If all you need are new Cera Sim download links, remember the offer from PC Aviator, that as long as they have the product, if you need a new download link for a product you purchased from a now closed store, they will provide a new link for free upon proof of purchase from the closed store. I think PC Aviator has most, if not all, of the Cera Sims. The details were mentioned here on SOH in a recent thread, but I can't find it now. Even if you don't need new download links right now, it may be worthwhile to take advantage of the offer for down the road. -RobM

    When my father was in the 13th TBS and they had party's at the DOOM club, they would drink French 75's... with the ingredients being cognac, champagne and lemon juice. Apparently, a very potent combination.

    I know if you are using older mods that are not compatible with the latest version you do lose the noise of the engine. You could also try going into Steam to run the option to verify the install again, so it will sort any files that are missing.

    This is not really anything to do with CFS 3. However I thought I would post my question here to drew on the wealth of knowledge that lurks in these portals. My Father was Bomber Command (Parthfinder) in the RAF during WW2, In conversation shortly before he passed away he stated that at no time during his service did his Lancaster's front turret ever fire in anger. He asked some of colleagues and they had said the same. He said he knew during the Augsburgh daylight raid and the Dam Buster raids they were used for ground suppression but he never heard of them being used against air targets. He believed this was because for a night fighter to initiate a head on attack against a bomber at night would be virtually impossible to set up due to closing speed. Radar may find the bomber but...

    I asked this at the A/C forums and have gotten no responces. Maybe someone here has an answer. I have been using A/C for about a year, a few days ago I started it and there is no longer any engine sounds. All the audio settings were set to 50% or higher, I set everything to 100%, same results. I did a couple of laps and discovered that the wind noise, sounds of going over curbs are still working, seems only the engine sound has been lost. I ran the car on both Content Manager and A/C, no engine sounds. Is there any other audio setting within A/C to check if somehow the engine sound has been turned off? Is there a way to restore the default settings for Audio? It just isn't the same without the engine noise. There were no changes or anything added...
